Standard 2.0 Knowledge of Geometry

Students will apply the properties of one-, two-, or three-dimensional geometric figures to describe, reason, or solve problems about shape, size, position, or motion of objects.

Topic

A. Plane Geometric Figures

Indicator

  • 1. Analyze the properties of plane geometric figures
Objectives
  1. Identify and describe angles formed by intersecting lines, line segments, and rays
    Assessment limit: Use vertical, adjacent, complementary, or supplementary angles (Include the angle symbol ∠m)
  2. Identify angles formed when two parallel lines are cut by a transversal
  3. Identify the parts of right triangles

Indicator

  • 2. Analyze geometric relationships
Objectives
  1. Determine a missing angle measurement using the sum of the interior angles of polygons.
    Assessment limit: Use angle measures in a quadrilateral
  2. Determine the measure of angles formed by intersecting lines, line segments, and rays.
    Assessment limit: Use vertical, adjacent, complementary, or supplementary angles
  3. Describe the relationship between the legs and hypotenuse of right triangles

Topic

C. Representation of Geometric Figures

Indicator

  • 1. Represent plane geometric figures
Objectives
  1. Construct geometric figures using a variety of construction tools
    Assessment limit: Construct a circle using a given line segment as the radius in whole number inches or centimeters
  2. Construct geometric figures using a variety of construction tools.
    Assessment limit: Construct a line segment congruent to a given line segment
  3. Construct geometric figures using a variety of construction tools
    Assessment limit: Construct a perpendicular bisector to a given line segment or a bisector of a given angle

Topic

D. Congruence and Similarity

Indicator

  • 1. Apply the properties of congruent polygons
Objectives
  1. Determine the congruent parts of polygons
    Assessment limit: Use the length of corresponding sides or the measure of corresponding angles and whole numbers (0 – 1000)
  2. Identify and describe similar polygons and their corresponding parts

Topic

E. Transformations

Indicator

Objectives
  1. Identify, describe, and plot the results of one transformation on a coordinate plane
    Assessment limit: Identify or plot the result of one translation (horizontal or vertical), reflection (horizontal or vertical), or rotation about a given point (90° or 180°)
  2. Identify and describe transformations that result in rotational and reflectional symmetry

Note: Highlighted assessment limits will be tested in the no calculator section of MSA. In the assessment limit, (0-10) or (-10 to 10) means all numbers in the problem or the answer will fall within the range of 0 to 10 (including endpoints) or -10 to 10 (including endpoints), respectively. All content standards are tested in MSA but not all objectives. Objectives that have an assessment limit are tested on MSA. Objectives without an assessment limit are not tested on MSA.
