Unit Overview
Content Area: Math
Unit Title: Geometry and Transformations
Unit: 6
Target Course/Grade Level: Eighth Grade
Timeline: 5/6 weeks
Unit Summary: Students build on their previous knowledge of measurement and geometry concepts to
explore angles and lines. Students will explore angle relationships created from parallel lines. Students
measure and classify angle and classify triangles. They determine the sum of their interior angles of
polygons. Students use similar triangles to solve problems including height and distances. Students use
the Pythagorean Theorem to solve problems with right triangles. Students will also use the coordinate grid
to apply transformations to plane figures, and understand how the transformation affects its congruency
and location on a coordinate plane.

Unit Enduring Understandings
 Adjacent angles share a common vertex and a
common side and do not overlap.
 Complementary angles are two angles in which the
sum of their angle measurements is 90 degrees.
 Supplementary angles are two angles in which the
sum of their angle measurements is 180 degrees.
 When parallel lines are cut by a line called a
transversal the following angles are created and are
congruent: Vertical, Corresponding, Alternate
Exterior and Alternate Interior.
 Triangles are classified by its side and angles
 A polygon is a closed figure classified by its sides.
 The Pythagorean Theorem describes a relationship
between the legs and the hypotenuse for any right
 A transformation is an operation that maps an
original geometric, the pre-image, onto a new
figure called the image. The movements are a
translation (slide), reflections (mirror image),
rotation (turn), dilation (enlargement or reduction).
