Unit: Similarity and Congruence through Modeling, Exploration and Reasoning
This unit was created by 3 of Professor Jo Boaler's graduate students, Dan Meyer, Sarah Kate Selling and Kathy Sun, for a local school. We thank IMP and Mark Driscoll for allowing us to use problems from their books. Modifications and updates were provided by Youcubed. The unit contains 19 lessons and two formal assessments. Geogebra is used in this unit. Go to http://www.geogebra.org for a free download
Task InstructionThis unit addresses two essential questions:
- How do we use mathematics to find the height of things that are difficult to measure?
- How do we make a convincing argument?
