Congruent Triangles (10/28/14)

Today we were exploring congruency shortcuts for triangles using this lesson recommended by Elissa here. It went really well. Students were having great discussions in their groups and exploring conditions using Anglegs. I can’t tell you how much I’m enjoying my geometry classes this year. Almost everyday is class I am impressed with the amount of thoughtfulness and effort that they put into our explorations. I somewhat expected this coming into this year, as these are 8th graders who are 2 years ahead in math, but I wasn’t expecting this level of engagement. I want to make sure I keep challenging and pushing them, as they seem to be rising to every expectation I put forward. I’m having a great time teaching these kids this year.
