chapter 3
geometric properties


Instructions for Chapter:

For this chapter you will complete a workbook over a three day period. there is a combination of teacher led tasks, group activities, and individual tasks. I will take you through investigations of geometric properties using geometer's sketchpad and you will also have the opportunity to use this software. The Chapter will conclude with an in class assignment that may be completed using a combination of algebra and geometer's sketchpad.
