|Title||Geometry basics : a fundamental approach|
Geometry--Study and teaching.
Geometry--Problems, exercises, etc.
|Abstract||Geometry is one of the required credits for students to graduate from high school in the state of Oklahoma. This unit teaches students the foundation of geometry starting from the smallest part, a single point, all the way through the formation of polygons. Students are introduced to key vocabulary, basic conceptual knowledge, spatial reasoning, and procedural skills. Students are asked to stretch mathematically through writing and talking about mathematics as well as having a strong procedural background. This unit also has been planned with a focus on entry into the covered topics. The first few lesson blocks have a low entry point meaning all students have access to the mathematics no matter what their achievement level is. The entry point is slowly raised as students gain confidence and understanding until students are gaining mastery at a more rigorous level. This unit teaches the basics of Geometry: Points, Lines, Planes, Segments, Angles, Lines, Parallel Lines, and Polygons. By the time students complete this unit they will be prepared for the more rigorous study of the many postulates, theorems, and proofs that are Geometry.|
