Solve equations and inequalities graphically using a given graph or using a graph created on a graphing calculator. (root, intersection)

## Alg I – Use a graphing calculator to find roots and intersections of lines?

(A1 5.1) (A1 2.1)

(A1 2.4)

# Geom -

## Alg II – Use graphing technology to find approximate solutions for polynomial equations.

# Trig/PreCalc – Use a graphing calculator to find intercepts, zeros, and asymptotes, of functions.

(PC 1.3) (PC 1.2)

Identify the relationships between a pair of congruent triangles or a pair of similar triangles.

## Alg I -

# Geom – Identify congruent sides through measurement and solving proportions. Construct triangles that are proportional and find similarity

(G 4.3) (G 4.6)

(G 4.9)

## Alg II – Use similar and congruent triangles to show trig ratios and property of proportions.

# Trig/PreCalc -

Find the area of standard geometric shapes (rectangles, triangles, trapezoids, circles, regular polygons) using the appropriate formula.

## Alg I – Measure polygons and find the area – Pi activity.

(A1 9.1)

# Geom – Construct triangles and measure and find area – find areas of circles using circular items students have brought in (construct circle and discover A= r2)

(G 4.3) (G 4.6)

(G 4.9)

## Alg II – Use Heron’s formula to find area of triangles given the lengths of three sides.

(A2 3.5)

# Trig/PreCalc – Given two sides and the angle between them in a triangle, find the area.

(PC 3.3)

Find the volume of standard geometric solids (cylinders, cones, spheres) using the appropriate formula.

## Alg I – Find volume of cylinders – using cans and measuring.

# Geom – Same as above

(G 7.7)

## Alg II -

# Trig/PreCalc -

Recognize that the volume for a regular solid (such as a cylinder) is the accumulation of the volume of the congruent cross sections.

## Alg I -

# Geom – Use Rubiks Cube or Legos to demonstrate volume as cubic.

(G 7.7)

## Alg II -

# Trig/PreCalc -
