Students will be using the segment addition postulate and the midpoint theorem to find the lengths of various segments. This will include simple drawings as well as more challenging word problems. These postulates and theorems will be used the entire year in Geometry.

Students will define a point, line, ray, segment, and plane as it relates to Geometry concepts they will be exploring the rest of the year. These definitions will become essential once students start writing proofs and determining when to use certain notation. This is a building block for the entire year.

In this lesson, students will learn how to use the CPCTC theorem (Congruent Parts of Congruent Triangles are Congruent) in order to complete a proof. They will first use one of the 5 triangle congruence theorems (SSS, SAS, AAS, ASA, HL) in order to use the CPCTC. It is a great lesson putting together everything they have learned thus far in the unit.

Students will culminate the unit on political parties with a debate on whether America should continue on with a two-party system or move to a multi-party system. To incorporate technology and an international aspect to the debate you will be participating with a classroom from Canada via Skype, a country that has a multi-party system.

This object is designed to get your students to understand the role of the minor parties in a two-party system. America is known as a "Two-Party System", however there are some Third Parties or Minor Parties that do exist. The role of the Minor Party is much different than the role of the two main parties in American politics.
