Geometry 6-2 Properties of ParallelogramsJanuary 24, 2010
Notes: Half-Sheet Tabbed Booklet Foldable
As I told S the other day, once I realized that kids were actually writing down the same information on the foldable as they would have for regular or holey notes, I decided I liked using them.
This booklet consists of three half-sheets (lengthwise) that are folded into a booklet with five tabs and a title page:
|Properties of Parallelograms|
|2 pairs of sides||If a quadrilateral has two pairs of parallel sides, then it is a parallelogram.|
|opp. sides||If a quadrilateral is a parallelogram, then opposite sides are congruent.|
|opp. s||If a quadrilateral is a parallelogram, then opposite angles are congruent.|
|cons. s supp.||If a quadrilateral is a parallelogram, then consecutive angles are supplementary.|
|diagonals bisect||If a quadrilateral is a parallelogram, then the diagonals bisect each other.|
I also gave each student a set of parallelograms to cut out and glue in each page to be labeled appropriately.
We didn’t get finished, but it’s okay since I had planned to spend two days on parallelogram properties.
