Transcript

  • 1. Chelsea Prue Lesson Plan Strand: Triangles and Logic Jeopardy Game Introduction • Lesson Topic: Review Triangles and Logic • Length of Lesson: 90 minutes (1 block) • VA Standards of Learning: • G.1 The student will construct and judge the validity of a logical argument consisting of a set of premises and a conclusion. This will include a. identifying the converse, inverse, and contrapositive of a conditional statement. b. translating a short verbal argument into symbolic form. c. using Venn diagrams to represent set relationships; and d. using deductive reasoning, including the law of syllogism.  G.5 The student will a. investigate and identify congruence and similarity relationships between triangles; and b. prove two triangles are congruent or similar, given information in the form of a figure or statement, using algebraic and coordinate as well as deductive proofs.  G.6 The student, given information concerning the lengths of sides and/or measures of angles will apply the triangle inequality properties to determine whether a triangle exists and to order sides and angles. These concepts will be considered in the context of practical situations.  G.7 The student will solve practical problems involving right triangles by using the Pythagorean Theorem, properties of special right triangles, and right triangle trigonometry. Solutions will be expressed in radical form or as decimal approximations. Cognitive Objectives Students will: • Identify the converse, inverse, and contrapositive of a conditional statement. • Translate short verbal arguments into symbolic form, such as (pq) and (~p~q). • Use and interpret Venn diagrams. • Determine the validity of a logical argument. • Use valid forms of deductive reasoning, including the law of syllogism. • Select and use various types of reasoning and methods of proof, as appropriate. • Use definitions, postulates, and theorems to determine whether triangles are congruent/similar. • Use algebraic methods, such as properties of proportions, to prove that triangles are similar. • Use coordinate methods, such as the distance formula, and the slope formula, to prove two triangles are congruent. • Given the lengths of three segments, determine whether a triangle could be formed. • Arrange the angles of a triangle in order from smallest to largest when given the lengths of the sides. • Arrange the sides of a triangle in order from smallest to largest when given the measures of the angles. • given the lengths of two sides of a triangle, determine the range in which the length of the third side must lie. • Given the lengths of two sides of a right triangle, use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the length of the third side. • Determine whether a triangle formed with three given lengths is a right triangle. • Solve for missing lengths in geometric figures, using properties of 45°-45°-90° triangles, and 30°-60°-90° triangles. • Solve problems involving right triangles, using sine, cosine, and tangent ratios. • Solve practical problems, using right triangle trigonometry and properties of right triangles. Materials/Technology and Advanced Preparation • Smartboard/projectors for Powerpoint Teaching and Learning Sequence Introduction/Anticipatory Set 1
  • 2. Chelsea Prue Lesson Plan Strand: Triangles and Logic Jeopardy Game • Use the Fill-In-The-Blank Framing Routine (attached) to review Logical Arguments. • Divide students into two teams. Teams should be seated on opposite sides of the room, with all students facing the projector screen. Lesson Development • Each team elects one representative to play Rock-Paper-Scissors (best out of three) to decide which team goes first. • Play Jeopardy game (attached), keeping score for both teams. Closure • Each team decides how many of the accumulated points they want to bet for the final question. • Hand out printed question taken from SOL released test questions (attached). • If the team gets the question right, they earn the amount of points the bet. If they get the question wrong, they lose the same amount of points. • Award two points of extra credit (to be added on Triangles and Logic test) to each member of the winning team. Homework Study for upcoming test on Triangles and Logic. Assessment Formative • Students answer questions during the Jeopardy game. Summative • Students answer questions during Jeopardy game. • Students answer final question for SOL released test items. 2
