Basics of Geometry
Unit Number
GEOM01
Course
Geometry
Content Area
Math
Description
Students will understand the defined and undefined terms of Geometry, analyze and apply transformations
to geometric figures and understand properties that are preserved by these transformations. They will construct geometric figures using a variety of tools and resources.
Timeline
2.5 Week(s)
Enduring Understandings
Points, lines and planes are the undefined terms that are agreed upon by all.
Points, lines and planes relate to each other in organized ways that can build into new figures.
Figures can be transformed in ways that do not preserve size and shape.
Figures can be transformed in ways that preserve size and shape.
Congruent triangles are the building blocks of Geometry.



Essential Questions
How are points, lines, rays and segments related ?
How does each pre-image relate to its image?
How do transformations relate to congruence?
In what ways is it possible to construct different geometric figures?
In what ways can congruence be useful?
