National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics Illustrating the Standards for Mathematical Practice Congruence and Similarity through Transformations Common Core State Standards Mathematics Standards for Content Standards for Practice 2

National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics Illustrating the Standards for Mathematical Practice Congruence and Similarity through Transformations Todays Goals Explore the Standards for Content and Practice through video of classroom practice. Consider how the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are likely to impact your mathematics program and to plan next steps. In particular participants will: Examine congruence and similarity defined through transformations Examine the use of precise language, viable arguments, appropriate tools, and geometric structure. 3

National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics Illustrating the Standards for Mathematical Practice Congruence and Similarity through Transformations Standards for Mathematical Practice The Standards for Mathematical Practice describe varieties of expertise that mathematics educators at all levels should seek to develop in their students. These practices rest on important processes and proficiencies with longstanding importance in mathematics education. (CCSS, 2010) 4

National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics Illustrating the Standards for Mathematical Practice Congruence and Similarity through Transformations Standards for Mathematical Practice 1.Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. 2.Reason abstractly and quantitatively. 3.Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. 4.Model with mathematics. 5.Use appropriate tools strategically. 6.Attend to precision. 7.Look for and make use of structure. 8.Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning. 5

National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics Illustrating the Standards for Mathematical Practice Congruence and Similarity through Transformations Reflective Writing Assignment How would you define congruence? How would you define similarity? 7

A two-dimensional figure is similar to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, translations and dilations Definition of Congruence & Similarity Used in the CCSS A two dimensional figure is congruent to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, and translations. 8

Static Conceptions of Similarity: Comparing two Discrete Figures 9 Corresponding side lengths of similar figures are in proportion (height 1 st triangle:height 2 nd triangle is equal to base 1 st triangle:base 2 nd triangle) Between Figures 1 36 2 Ratios of lengths within a figure are equal to ratios of corresponding lengths in a similar figure (height :base1 st triangle is equal to height :base 2 nd triangle) Within Figures 1 3 6 2

A Transformation-based Conception of Similarity 10 What do you notice about the geometric structure of the triangles?

National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics Illustrating the Standards for Mathematical Practice Congruence and Similarity through Transformations Standards for Mathematical Content Here is an excerpt from the 8th Grade Standards: 8.G.1-4 1.Verify experimentally the properties of rotations, reflections, and translations: …abc…. 2.Understand that a two-dimensional figure is congruent to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, and translations; given two congruent figures, describe a sequence that exhibits the congruence between them. 3.Describe the effect of dilations, translations, rotations, and reflections on two-dimensional figures using coordinates. 4.Understand that a two-dimensional figure is similar to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, translations, and dilations; given two similar two-dimensional figures, describe a sequence that exhibits the similarity between them. 13

National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics Illustrating the Standards for Mathematical Practice Congruence and Similarity through Transformations Hannahs Rectangle Problem Discussion Construct a viable argument for why those rectangles are similar. Which definition of similarity guided your strategy, and how did it do so? What tools did you choose to use? How did they help you? 16

National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics Illustrating the Standards for Mathematical Practice Congruence and Similarity through Transformations Norms for Watching Video Video clips are examples, not exemplars. –To spur discussion not criticism Video clips are for investigation of teaching and learning, not evaluation of the teacher. –To spur inquiry not judgment Video clips are snapshots of teaching, not an entire lesson. –To focus attention on a particular moment not what came before or after Video clips are for examination of a particular interaction. –Cite specific examples (evidence) from the video clip, transcript and/or lesson graph. 17

National Council of Supervisors of Mathematics Illustrating the Standards for Mathematical Practice Congruence and Similarity through Transformations Unpacking Randys Method What did Randy do? (What was his method?) Why might we argue that Randys conception of similarity is more transformation-based than static? What mathematical practices does he employ? –What mathematical argument is he using? –What tools does he use? How does he use them strategically? –How precise is he in communicating his reasoning? 20
