Tuesday/Wednesday Jan 3/4

Welcome back! It is nice to see everyone back at school after our abrupt start to vacation. I got to work on potty-training my 2 year old daughter 🙂 and spent a lot of nice time with friends and family. I hope your family had a good winter vacation.

In class yesterday and today we picked up where we left off from before break with our work to understand the properties of various polygons and also practice the habit of investigating geometric properties. This involves creating a precise definition, and then creating various examples which fit our definition and looking for similarities and interesting relationships. Once we discover them the task because to explain why and create geometric proofs. The work builds on students knowledge of triangle congruence, constructions and angle relationships.
