 Standard 3 Geometry Students will investigate, model, and apply geometric properties and relationships Level 1 apply the given Pythagorean Theorem to real-world problems Animated Proof of the Pythagorean Theorem Demonstrate the Pythagorean Theorem - from NOVA Interactive Proof of Pythagoras' theorem - This Java applet was written by Jim Morey. It won grand prize in Sun Microsystem's Java programming contest in the Summer of 1995. Nineteen Pythagorean Theorem applets Pythagorean theorem - In this session, you will look at a few proofs and several applications of one of the most famous theorems in mathematics Proof of the theorem is demonstrated through a Quicktime animation Pythagorean Theorem - a java applet that allows students to investigate this theorem Pythagorean Theorem and its many proofs (43 to be precise) The Pythagorean Theorem, Distance Formula and Intro to Trigonometry - other practice activities Using the Pythagorean Theorem Once you know the equation a 2 + b 2 = c 2 is true, then you can use it to solve all kinds of problems. Try the Pythagorean theorem with two other examples given on this page Level 2 predict the graphical transformation that occurs when coefficients and/or constants of given function are changed (no trigonometric or logarithmic functions) apply proportion and the concepts of similar triangles to solve real world problems Geometry Java Applets - Similar Figures A Mathematical Droodle - Two Triples of Similar Triangles Percent and Proportion - unit 10 from Ms. Glosser's Math Goodies Plane Math - Nine activities involving aviation and mathematic Proportional Thinking and Probability - here you will find the Customizable Proportion Problems and much more Ratio and Proportion - four stage lesson includes examples and a set of workout problems Level 3 describe the transformation that has changed a ?parent function? to the given related function (e.g., right shift of 3 units, reflection in the x-axis) Sample Task use properties of similar triangles to determine the height of objects that are difficult to measure Determining The Height Of A Waterfall - In research on waterfalls often the most confusing aspect has been determining the true height of a waterfall. How to use the distance formula to find distances between (x,y) points Object Height Calculator - Use the SCSA Object Height Calculator to calculate the height of tall shadow-casters, e.g., buildings, flagpoles, utility poles, trees, etc. Out of the Shadows: The Problem of Slopes - Knowing the sun's elevation is not enough to determine the height of an object from the length of its shadow; the slope of the surface on which the shadow is being cast must also be known. Measured Altitude of a Model Rocket - a simple way to determine the maximum altitude the rocket reaches at the end of the coasting flight Measured Altitude of a Kite - a simple way to determine the altitude of a flying kite
 Standard 4 Measurement The student will understand and be able to apply the units, systems and processes of measurement. Level 1 select the area representation for a given product of two binomials Level 2 apply the given formula to find area and circumference of circles, area and perimeter of polygons, and volume of regular solids Lesson on Circumference of a Circle - a quiz is included at the bottom of the page Lesson on the Area of a Circle Circle, Sphere & Cylinder Calculator Level 3 solve real world problems given logarithmic and exponential formulas (e.g. Ph scale, Richter scale.) Sample Task Students construct designs using basic geometric constructions. Then they transfer the design to a piece of 8" X 11" pane of plexiglas and paint the pane to create a ?stained glass.? Students construct one of the? regular 3-dimensional solid and compute the volume and surface area.
