BIG IDEAS

  • I can lay out a football or baseball field, create floor plans, and plan building construction with engineering and architecture.
  • I will develop analytical skills through comparing, contrasting, and sorting while improving my ability to look at things through multiple perspectives making me a better problem solver.


UNDERSTANDING THE STANDARD

  • The terms characteristics and properties can be used interchangeably to describe quadrilaterals.  The term characteristics is used in elementary and middle school mathematics.
  • Quadrilaterals have a hierarchical nature based on the relationships between their sides, angles, and diagonals.
  • Characteristics of quadrilaterals can be used to identify the quadrilateral and to find the measures of sides and angles.

·  Deductive or inductive reasoning is used in mathematical proofs.  In this course, deductive reasoning and logic are used in direct proofs. Direct proofs are presented in different formats (typically two-column or paragraph) and employ definitions, postulates, theorems, and algebraic justifications including coordinate methods.

·  Quadrilaterals have a hierarchical nature based on the relationships between their sides, angles, and diagonals.

·  Properties of quadrilaterals can be used to identify the quadrilateral and to determine the measures of sides and angles.

·  Given coordinate representations of quadrilaterals, the distance, slope, and midpoint formulas may be used to verify that quadrilaterals have specific properties.

·  The angle relationships formed when parallel lines are intersected by a transversal can be used to prove properties of quadrilaterals.

·  Congruent triangles can be used to prove properties of quadrilaterals. 

·  A parallelogram is a quadrilateral with both pairs of opposite sides parallel.  Properties of a parallelogram include the  following: 

­  opposite sides are congruent;

­  opposite angles are congruent;

­  consecutive angles are supplementary; and

­  diagonals bisect each other.

·  A rectangle is a quadrilateral with four right angles.  Properties of rectangle include the following:

­  opposite sides are parallel and congruent; and

­  diagonals are congruent and bisect each other.

·  A rhombus is a quadrilateral with four congruent sides.  Properties of a rhombus include the following:

­  all sides are congruent;

­  opposite sides are parallel;

­  opposite angles are congruent;

­  diagonals are perpendicular bisectors of each other;

­  diagonals bisect opposite angles; and

­  diagonals divide the rhombus into four congruent right triangles.

·  A square is a quadrilateral that is a regular polygon with four congruent sides and four right angles.  Properties of a square include the following:

­  opposite sides are parallel;

­  diagonals are congruent;

­  diagonals are perpendicular bisectors of each other; and

­  diagonals divide the square into four congruent
 45°-45°-90° triangles.

·  A trapezoid is a quadrilateral with exactly one pair of parallel sides.  The parallel sides of a trapezoid are called bases.  The nonparallel sides of a trapezoid are called legs.

·  An isosceles trapezoid has the following properties:

­  nonparallel sides are congruent;

­  diagonals are congruent; and

­  base angles are congruent.

·  The construction of the perpendicular bisector of a line segment can be justified using the properties of quadrilaterals.

·  The construction of the perpendicular to a given line from a point on, or not on, the line can be justified using the properties of quadrilaterals.

·  The construction of the perpendicular to a given line from a point on the line can be justified using the properties of quadrilaterals.

·  The construction of a bisector of a given angle can be justified using the properties of quadrilaterals.

·  The construction of a square inscribed in a circle can be justified using the properties of squares.
