Day 65: The One with Parallel Lines

Coordinate geometry is a mostly new topic for me and we only have 7 days for it (we are that close to our 2-week semester end portfolios). Curriculum partner and I also realize that I’ve never actually planned a unit on my own and decide to each plan our own unit separately (if things go South, we don’t lose that much time).

I pull and adapt some things from The District. There’s not a lot of context to it; it’s mostly kiddos analyzing lines on a graph, but the kiddos seem OK with it for the most part, possibly because we’ve worked with graphs enough that they are not a foreign concept.
