Unit Two - Angles, Areas, and the Pythagorean Theorem
We will begin this unit by investigating angles and areas of shapes. We will use the transformations we studied in Unit 1 to discover relationships between angles formed by transversals and angles in a triangle, and also to discover how to find the areas of shapes including triangles, parallelograms, and trapezoids.
We will also start to investigate triangles. We will discover the relationships between the sides of any triangle, and between the sides of a right triangle (the Pythagorean Theorem). Once you have studied the Pythagorean Theorem, you will be able to apply it to find the perimeter and area of more composite shapes!
