# Digital Unit Plan Template Unit Title: Quadrilaterals Content Area: Hon Geometry

## Name: Shane Engel Grade Level: 9-10

Common Core G CO 11: Prove theorems about parallelograms. Theorems include: opposite sides are congruent, opposite angles are congruent, the diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other, and conversely, rectangles are parallelograms with congruent diagonals. G GPE 4: Use coordinates to prove simple geometric theorems algebraically. For example, prove or disprove that a figure defined by four given points in the coordinate plane is a rectangle; prove or disprove that the point (1, 3) lies on the circle centered at the origin and conta ining the point (0, 2). G MG 1: Use geometric shapes, their measures, and their properties to describe objects (e.g., modeling a tree trunk or a human torso as a cylinder).
Big Ideas: Students must learn to identify different quadrilaterals based on their properties. Students must be able to prove the properties of quadrilaterals and use them to prove other facts. Students must be able to find missing values in quadrilaterals and figures. Students must be able to determine the total and individual interior/exterior angles of polygons. Students must be able to reason with and explain the definitions and properties of quadrilaterals. Unit Goals and Objectives: When given 5 figures with certain properties demonstrated, students will be able to correctly identify at least 4 of them. When given 20 critical thinking questions about quadrilaterals, students will be able to provide a reasonable answer for all of them. When given a graphic organizer, students must be able to identify at least 6 characteristics for squares, rectangles, rhombi, parallelograms, trapezoids, and kites. Unit Summary: This unit will begin with a more direct lesson about the different properties of polygons and how we can identify them. The emphasis will be placed on quadrilaterals. There will be a short quiz to show that they have learned this material. The students will then work to complete a web exercise, which will consist of them looking over several websites to answer various questions. There will be some direct questions, but many will be critical thinking questions that require synthesizing the entire page of information. There will also be a short quiz to demonstrate mastery of this, but this one will be in groups. Lastly, there will be a graphic organizer activity for the students to complete. This will be an activity that will be useful for students to compare and contrast the various properties of quadrilaterals on a single page. Assessment Plan: Entry-Level: To begin this unit, students will look over a Quizlet page and practice with the various words and definitions. There are a number of activities designed to help with memorization and understanding the information that they will need to begin the unit. Formative: There will be a number of formative assessments for this unit and they will include a graphic organizer, a crossword puzzle, a brief survey, and a small quiz on Quiz Star. The primary formative assessment will be the graphic organizer because it encompasses all of the Summative: There will be two summative assessments, which are a construction project and a Composite Animal Poster. The construction project will be for practice and demonstrating a level of understanding about how constructions are performed. The Composite Animal

information and will serve as the best aid in seeing how well a student is doing. Lesson 1 Student Learning Objective: When given 5 figures with certain properties demonstrated, students will be able to correctly identify at least 4 of them. Lesson 2 Student Learning Objective: When given 20 critical thinking questions about quadrilaterals, students will be able to provide a reasonable answer for all of them. Lesson 3 Student Learning Objective: When given a graphic organizer, students must be able to identify at least 6 characteristics for squares, rectangles, rhombi, parallelograms, trapezoids, and kites. Unit Resources:

Poster will be a fun activity to have the students be creative and demonstrate their complete mastery of the unit.

Acceptable Evidence: Students will complete a 5 question, free response quiz independently.

Lesson Activities: Teacher will have a Prezi presentation and guided notes to demonstrate the different properties of quadrilaterals. The slides will have visual demonstrations to show how these properties can be seen and not just heard.

Acceptable Evidence: Students will complete a web exercise sheet, which will consist of direct questions as well as critical thinking and synthesizing ones.

Lesson Activities: Students will search five given websites to answer certain questions. The answers and core information will be found on each site and the student will use the whole site to come up with the best possible answer.

Acceptable Evidence: Students will work independently to complete a graphic organizer. There is a rubric attached with further grading details, but they must provide at least six characteristics for each shape to be complete.

Lesson Activities: Students will be given a digital template for completing the graphic organizer. They will have all of their resources, from the guided notes to the webercise, and they are to complete the graphic organizer completely. They are allowed to add more characteristics than required, but six will be the most needed.
