Description:
Use visual representations of circle diagrams to justify that congruent segments have equal measure.
Instructional Routine Type:
Connecting Representations
Course:
Geometry
Unit:
1
Big Idea: Big Idea 1
Description:
Use the structure of a pair of matches triangles to make sense of congruency notation. This is not about matching based on ASA, SAS, or SSS.
Instructional Routine Type:
Connecting Representations
Course:
Geometry
Unit:
1
Big Idea: Big Idea 1
Description:
Match representations of angle constructions to resulting shapes by connecting to what students know about polygons or chunking both constructions and the polygons to focus on side-angle or side-side relationships.
Instructional Routine Type:

Big Idea: Big Idea 2
Description:
Students will connect summaries of constructions to diagrams showing the steps of that construction.

Description:
Use visual structure of transformations for triangles to connect with sentence descriptions of transformations.
Instructional Routine Type:
Connecting Representations
Course:
Geometry
Unit:
1
Big Idea: Big Idea 4
Description:
Students will be able to connect sequences of transformations to diagrams that show the results of the sequence.
Instructional Routine Type:
Connecting Representations
Course:
Geometry
Unit:

Big Idea: Big Idea 5
Description:
Match constructions to representations of SSS, which then leads to showing the triangles are congruent to each other.
Instructional Routine Type:
Connecting Representations
Course:
Geometry
Unit:
1
Big Idea: Big Idea 5
Description:
Students will match worded descriptions of transformations to visual representations of transformations. Some are equivalent to each other.
Instructional Routine Type:
Connecting Representations
Course:
Geometry
Unit:
1
Big Idea: Big Idea 3
Description:
Students will explore the relationship between the size of constructed circles, the distance between them, and the type of triangle that can be created from the circles.
Instructional Routine Type:

Description:
Use the structure of the graph of a parabola to make connections to the vertex and axis of symmetry of those parabolas.
Instructional Routine Type:
Connecting Representations
Course:
Algebra I
Unit:
