This is a task on the concept of Quadrilaterals and Parallelograms.
This is a 5 page team task. In this task students will take turns as "Team Mathematician".
Students will determine if the given quadrilateral can be drawn, justify their reasoning, and if not possible, explain.
Students will state whether the given statement is true or false, and justify their response.
Students will determine whether the given statements are true or false. If they are false, they will rewrite the sentence to make it true. If they are true, they will list any other quadrilaterals for which the sentence would be true.
Students will complete the given statements with All, Some, or No, and justify their reasoning.
Students will determine whether there is enough given information to know that the given figure is a parallelogram. If so, they will state the definition or theorem that justifies their conclusion.
* This task will have your classroom rich in mathematical discourse.
*** My "Team Tasks" are created to be completed in Teams of four. Each student is a team member: Team Member (A), Team Member (B), Team Member (C), and Team Member (D). Each team member is required to participate regularly throughout the "Team Task" as Team Mathematician. My cooperative learning "Team Tasks" require the students to be actively involved throughout the entire "Team Task". The Role of "Team Mathematician" alternates throughout the "Team Task". My "Team Tasks" are designed to elicit mathematical discourse within the teams.
Included are blackline masters. (There is no answer key. There are various answer that will be acceptable. This is a task rich in student reasoning).
