11/21/2021 -- Beginners 2A: Fall - Pythagorean Theorem

Class Plan:

We begin studying the Pythagorean theorem.

Required Resources:

A pencil, eraser, compass, and straightedge.

Homework Due:

  • Please re-read pages 1 through 12 of the "Introduction to Geometry: Lesson 1" packet to review euclidean geometry definitions. The students do not have to do the problems in this packet.
  • Please read and attempt the questions on pages 8 through 11 of the "Introduction to Geometry: Lesson 3" packet. Again, these proofs will be challenging so it is okay if the students do not complete the proofs. They should give the problems their time and effort of course, though.

Homework Assigned:

To be announced.
