Geometry Module 1, Topic A, Overview

Geometry with Formulas

Students begin this module with Topic A, Constructions.  Major constructions include an equilateral triangle, an angle bisector, and a perpendicular bisector.  Students synthesize their knowledge of geometric terms with the use of new tools and simultaneously practice precise use of language and efficient communication when they write the steps that accompany each construction (G.CO.1).
