Properties of Parallelograms (Day 4)

50 Minute Class, Curriculum, Geometry

Learning Goal: Wrap up properties of parallelograms by focusing on discovered students need from formative assessment. Then, push for advanced understanding with an activity.



  • Common Core
    • HSG.CO.C.11 – Prove theorems about parallelograms. Theorems include: opposite sides are congruent, opposite angles are congruent, the diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other, and conversely, rectangles are parallelograms with congruent diagonals.
  • TEKS
    • G.5(A)¬†– investigate patterns to make conjectures about geometric relationships, including angles formed by parallel lines cut by a transversal, criteria required for triangle congruence, special segments of triangles, diagonals of quadrilaterals, interior and exterior angles of polygons, and special segments and angles of circles choosing from a variety of tools
    • G.6(E)¬†– prove a quadrilateral is a parallelogram, rectangle, square, or rhombus using opposite sides, opposite angles, or diagonals and apply these relationships to solve problems
