Summary

This unit builds on earlier geometry units, initially to consider constructions with straight line and compass, which are then used to solve loci problems, with an emphasis on developing problem solving skills. Congruency of shapes is explored and congruence criteria for triangles are developed and associated problems solved. Similarity is explored, and its understanding developed so that students can solve problems in missing lengths and angles through reasoning. The relationship between the side lengths of right angled triangles is explored and Pythagoras’ Theorem reached and used to find missing sides and solve more complex reasoning problems set in a real-life context. The unit closes by developing understanding of how to pose a simple proof set in a geometric context; using symmetry, and the side and angle properties developed so far.

What people say...

The PowerPoints were thorough and detailed and helped my knowledge of the subject as a non specialist.
