# Designing With Geometry

## Applying Key Geometry Concepts

Welcome to “Designing With Geometry,” a new math program designed to build understanding of key geometry concepts. Developed by The Actuarial Foundation with Scholastic, this program provides skill-building and critical-thinking activities in a real-world context.

**LESSON PLANS**

**Lesson 1: Polygons on the Coordinate Plane **

Using the coordinate plane, students will be able to draw polygons; measure length, perimeter, and area; find missing coordinates; and calculate distance.

Lesson 2: Scale Drawings of Geometric Figures

Students will be able to calculate a scale factor and use it to determine side lengths.

Lesson 3: Finding Missing Angle Measurements

Lesson 3: Finding Missing Angle Measurements

Using knowledge of supplementary, complementary, adjacent, and vertical angles, students will be able to write and solve equations to find missing angle measurements.

Lesson 4: Congruence and Transformations

Students will be able to determine congruence as well as complete transformations, including translations, reflections, and rotations.

Lesson 5: Applying the Pythagorean Theorem

Students will identify the properties of a right triangle. Students will apply understanding of the Pythagorean Theorem to find distances on a coordinate grid or the lengths of the diagonals of rectangles.
