STREAM: Transformations and Proofs (HS)

January 6, 2019 - January 25, 2019
On-line, Teacher Learning Hub MT United States

The introduction of the Common Core standards inspired a change in the mindset of “basing transformations on congruence” to the more intuitive approach of “basing congruence on transformations.” In modern geometry, the traditional arguments justifying congruence and similarity are more effectively supported by rigid transformations and dilations. In this 3-week module, we examine how transformations are applied to justify congruence and similarity. 15 Renewal Units Enrollment opens – December 17, 2018
