Parallel and perpendicular lines challenge students to understand slope, functions, domain and range, and the relationship between graphs and equations.
This mission is aligned to Common Core State Standards: HSA.CED.2, HSF.BF.A.1.A.
The fun stuff:
Slope triangles allow students to visualize parallel and perpendicular lines, and understand why the slopes of perpendicular lines are negative reciprocals of each other. This mission also ties together all the possible relationships between lines in two dimensions. I left the skew to you, but the 2D up to me!

About Courage To Core:
We all have an innate curiosity about how the world works. We are wired to experiment at the edges of our knowledge, to look for patterns and to draw conclusions. Mistakes are the welcome surprises which help us refine the experiment. In a student-centered classroom, students collaborate to ask questions, gather data, interpret results and articulate understanding. Success at the edge of knowledge demands persistence and creativity. Courage To Core provides a context for students to work together to become the agents of their success and the owners of their cognition.
