Students will cut out the cards on the attached worksheet. They will walk around the room and show their partner the triangle. Their partner will then answer with what type of triangle congruence theorem it is (ASA, SSS, HL, etc). It is a great way for students to visualize the different theorems and get out of their seats!

Students will interactively learn about the angle relationships including corresponding, alternate interior, alternate exterior, vertical, and same-side interior angles. They will learn which pairs are congruent and which pairs add up to 180 degrees (only assuming the lines are parallel). They will also have their first encounter with a transversal and how that fits into the equation.

Students will review what they have learned over this unit (basics of geometry, proofs, etc). They will do 3 review stations, and then they will participate in a power-point game using their white boards and markers.

This lesson is the students' first real experience with writing a 2-column geometric proof. They will be given the format of a how a proof looks (given, definitions/theorems/etc, and then conclusion), and they will practice with a couple fill in the blank proofs which leads into eventually writing their own 2-column proof of the Vertical Angles Theorem.

Students are introduced to Geometric Proofs in the real world. They are required to try piece together different hints and clues to try and solve a murder case before the experts (CSI agents) do. It is a great interactive and fun activity to get students excited about proofs.
