We are currently studying the perimeter and area of two-dimensional shapes. This unit begins with the Pythagorean Theorem, a tool that allows us to find missing measurements of triangles.
You could use this to discover the distance from first to third plate on a baseball diamond.
You could use this to find the distance from New York City to Los Angeles.
With writing SOL's approaching, IXL's will not be homework this week. If you need more practice, try the IXL strands R.1 through R.5!
Quiz on Pythagorean Theorem applications Friday March 3!
We are in our circles unit! This includes finding the measures of lines that are tangent to circles, comparing arc lengths to inner angle measures, discovering the length of secant lines, sector areas, angles of inscribed polygons, and more. The circles unit is a tough one!
Because of the depth of the circles unit and its difficulty (16 or more theorems to keep track of!) the test will be open-note style. Expect this test (tentative) around March 21.
IXL is highly recommended as a study tool for the test; Any topic under the "U" heading will be covered in the coming weeks.
