Product Description
Geometry Enrichment Choice Board – Eighth Grade– This enrichment menu project is an amazing differentiation tool that not only empowers students through choice but also meets their individual needs.

You will find that the geometry enrichment board contains three leveled activities for each standard: appetizer, entrée, and dessert. No two activities are alike!

Students can either choose to complete activities from the project menu or design their own projects with the approval of their teachers by completing the project proposal.

This resource includes…
• Sample Lesson Plans
• Project Proposal
• Project Rubric
• Presentation Rubric

This choice board enrichment project is especially wonderful for both gifted and reluctant learners because it gives the students a greater sense of ownership, the ability to work at their own pace, and the freedom to choose or design activities based on their own interests and readiness.

Standards:

8.G.A.1 - Verify experimentally the properties of rotations, reflections, and translations

8.G.A.2 - Understand that a two-dimensional figure is congruent to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, and translations; given two congruent figures, describe a sequence that exhibits the congruence between them.

8.G.A.3 - Describe the effect of dilations, translations, rotations, and reflections on two-dimensional figures using coordinates.

8.G.A.4 - Understand that a two-dimensional figure is similar to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, translations, and dilations; given two similar two-dimensional figures, describe a sequence that exhibits the similarity between them.

8.G.A.5 - Use informal arguments to establish facts about the angle sum and exterior angle of triangles, about the angles created when parallel lines are cut by a transversal, and the angle-angle criterion for similarity of triangles. For example, arrange three copies of the same triangle so that the sum of the three angles appears to form a line, and give an argument in terms of transversals why this is so.

8.G.B.6 - Explain a proof of the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse.

8.G.B.7 - Use informal arguments to establish facts about the angle sum and exterior angle of triangles, about the angles created when parallel lines are cut by a transversal, and the angle-angle criterion for similarity of triangles. For example, arrange three copies of the same triangle so that the sum of the three angles appears to form a line, and give an argument in terms of transversals why this is so.

8.G.B.8 - Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to determine unknown side lengths in right triangles in real-world and mathematical problems in two and three dimensions.

8.G.C.9 - Know the formulas for the volumes of cones, cylinders, and spheres and use them to solve real-world and mathematical problems.
