## Included Resources

This course map provides an overview of the structure of the Geometry curriculum offered by New Visions for Public Schools.

Unit 0: This introductory unit to Geometry, provided by New Visions for Public Schools, helps to promote a growth mindset for students as they begin the Geometry Course. The resources in this unit are intended to be used at the beginning of the school year to introduce students to the idea that anyone can learn mathematics and to provide instructi...

Unit 1: This unit, provided by New Visions for Public Schools, is about using tools to explain the congruence within and between polygons, focusing on triangles and regular polygons. Essential Questions: What does it mean for geometric figures to be congruent? How are constructions and transformations used to understand and be more precise abou...

Unit 2: This unit, provided by New Visions for Public Schools, is about proving the congruence of angles, sides, and triangles and using these congruent relationships to prove properties of parallel lines, triangles, and other polygons. Essential Questions: How do we know when two geometric functions are congruent? How do we prove a statement is ...

Unit 3: This unit, provided by New Visions for Public Schools, is about understanding similarity through dilations (similarity transformations). Essential Questions: Why are dilations important to understanding similarity? What relationships exist between the sides and angles of similar triangles? How do we use similarity to prove relationships ...

Unit 4: This unit, provided by New Visions for Public Schools, is about right triangles and the relationships that exist between sides and angles. Students determine when to use trigonometric rations, Pythagorean Theorem, and/or properties of right triangles to model problems and solve them. Essential Questions: What relationships exist between...

Unit 5: This unit, provided by New Visions for Public Schools, is about describing, representing, and using the relationships between two-dimensional and three -dimensional figures to model and solve problems arising in everyday life. Essential Questions: How are two-dimensional and three-dimensional objects related to each other? How can we use...

Unit 6: This unit, provided by New Visions for Public Schools, is about using the coordinate plane to prove the similarity and congruence relationships from previous units analytically. Students use coordinates to verify geometric relationships by finding slope and distance of a line to support their proof. Essential Questions: How are coordinat...

Unit 7: This unit, provided by New Visions for Public Schools, is about circles. The idea of radian measure is introduced through the idea that all circles are similar. Essential Questions: How can we model real life situations? How can we use multiple representations to make sense of the world? How do we measure change?
