CHCCS Math 2 Scope and Sequence
Week of Feb 20- Feb 24
During this week, students received the second volume of our CHCCS Math 2 curriculum materials for this school year. There are 4 units in this volume, the first two on geometry, then a unit on right triangle trigonometry, and we finish the year with probability, as indicated in the Scope and Sequence document
Week of Mar 6-10
All sections of Math 2 and Honors Math 2 test on Unit 5 Congruence, Construction, and Proof.
Week of Mar 13-17
Quarter 3 Benchmark testing this week!
We begin study on Unit 6 Geometric Figures. Here is the Learning Map for Unit 6. This unit begins with experiments to convince ourselves that the sum of the interior angles of a triangle is 180 degrees. Then we move on to formal, 2-column geometric proofs. How do you know that? - or Ways of Knowing are a major focus in this unit. Although justification and explanation have been expected from students at all phases of their prior math studies, 2-column geometric proofs are a new way of thinking for many students. Formalized proofs are highly structured exercises in logic and justification and students will come to appreciate and enjoy the outcomes.
Here is a link to resources for Unit 6 (videos and worksheets) that will support students as they study geometric figures.
