2. Composite Figure problem

**March 16, 2015**Homework:

1. From the textbook: Page 530, #37-42

The angles of these triangles may not be a multiple of 5. For example, question 37 has an angle of 19 degrees. I want you to change the angle measure to the closest multiple of 5. So, for question 37, please use a 20 degree angle. Also, not all of the triangles will be oriented the same way. If you look at question 38, the 46 degree angle is not the angle of elevation. You can rotate the triangle so that it is the angle of elevation (when you do this, BC will your base, and AB will be your altitude). Finally, you do NOT need to solve for the side lengths that the question is asking for, just set it up. So, for question 37, you should have altitude/hypotenuse = x/11. That's all you need to do. We will finish solving these on Wednesday.

__February 4, 2015__Homework:

1. Finish the worksheet from class. If you were absent (for CAHSEE or otherwise) you can find the 2 different tasks here:

Why Does SAS Work? and Properties of Congruent Triangles

2. Section 4-5 Challenge

My suggestion is that you use Desmos to help you with this. Visit their website HERE!! This will help you make sure that you have graphed the lines correctly.

Part b for the 3 problems talks about writing a paragraph proof. You DO NOT need to do this. Instead, identify corresponding parts that are congruent.

If you would like to show that two sides are congruent, you can use the distance formula/Pythagorean Theorem to do so

2. Lines and Transversals Worksheet

**November 14, 2014**Homework:

1. Pg. 158, #6-11. I know that you looked at these problems for your previous assignment, but this time, it'll be a little different. Please see the

**EXAMPLE**that I've provided. The only thing that I did not include in my example was general names for the angles. In the textbook, they name the angles with letters.

**You should use these in your first step.**So, if you want to say, for example, that Angle ABC is congruent to Angle XYZ (I'm just making this up), and they are corresponding angles created by parallel lines cut by a transversal, the first step should be "Angle ABC = Angle XYZ" and your reason is "Corresponding Angles Postulate". The next step should be where you plug in the values for the angles and use "Substitution P. of E."

**November 12, 2014**Homework:

1. Complete the yellow sheet from class. Both sides should be filled in, including Examples and Non-Examples from the side we worked on in class. You may want to check out pages 104 and 106 to help you fill out the other side that we did not discuss in class.

Homework:

1. TEST ON FRIDAY

2. On Friday I will be collecting a variety of worksheets: Kuta Software - Rotations, Combining Transformations, MATH Worksheet, A Series of Transformations, and Mirrors Activity. Please make sure that these are completed and ready for submission before your test. Happy Studying! :)

October 27, 2014October 27, 2014

Homework:

1. Combining Transformations Worksheet. Please try to combine AT LEAST TWO transformations to send Triangle A to Triangle B. For example, reflection then translation or rotation then reflection.

Explore - Looking at the two triangles, describe how you are exploring the relationships between them. Are you using Patty Paper? Are you using a ruler?

Conjecture - Think of a statement that you believe to be true. Maybe after your exploration, you think you can send Triangle A to Triangle B by first translating and then reflecting. If this is the case, I want you to write a conjecture that is something like, "Triangle A can be sent to Triangle B by first translating and then reflecting." You will get more specific in the next step.

Validate - If we stick with the above conjecture, I want you to test it out on the two triangles. If it holds true, if you can translate and then reflect, give me particular details. For your translation, what distance and direction did you use? For the reflection, what line of reflection did you use? Please be specific. "Translate then reflect" will not be enough of an answer!

**You will do this twice**. If you find one combination, see if you can find another. Also, if you find that a translation and then a reflection will work, maybe for the second time around you could try a reflection and then translation? This is a different combination of transformations.

__August 25, 2014__Homework:

1. Protractor Practice - Front side: Estimate the measure of each angle, write down your estimation

Back side: For the 4 angles on the left, leave the drawing as is, for the four drawings on the right, please move the vertex to the right hand side of the segment when drawing your angle. For the eight angles on the back, please estimate what an angle with the given measure would look like. Starting from the vertex of each angle, draw a dotted/dashed line that would represent that particular angle measure.

When you return to class on Wednesday, we will be using protractors to actually draw and measure the angles. Remember, estimation is not perfect and your first draft does not have to be your final draft!
