Chapter 1

Exploring Algebraic and Geometric Relationships

Section 1.1 Polygons

A “polygon bucket” will introduce you to a variety of basic polygons that you will describe, classify, and name according to their attributes, such as parallel sides and symmetry.

Section 1.2 Explore, Prove, Question, Conjecture

You will apply the investigative process as you ask questions and make and test predictions. You will represent a pattern of growth using tables, graphs, and equations, and you will make connections between expressions and geometric models. You will identify and describe important features of graphs.

Section 1.3 Angle Pair Relationships

You will identify and prove relationships between pairs of angles formed by intersecting lines and among sides and angles of triangles.
