9/17/14 |

9/15/14 | 1.6 Congruence, continued 1.7 Triangle inequalities |
1.8 Right triangles 1.9 Segment and Angle Bisectors |

Originally due Wed 9/24, but now due Monday, 9/29 because of the fire. |

9/22/14 | 1.10 Basic construction problems | No class due to fire in math building | 115, 120, 121, 123, 125, 129, 130, 133, extra credit: 136. In construction problems, you must give the steps of the construction (in order), and then prove that your construction solves the problem. You may assume problems 1-7 in chapter 1.10 as known (ie, you can say "drop a perpendicular from D to line AB") Read the rest of chapter 1. |
10/1/14 |

9/29/14 | 1.11 Parallel lines | 1.12 Angle sums in polygons |
none due this week; prepare for the midterm. But look at 141, 150, 151, 152, 153, 155, 157, 164, 169. | |

10/6/14 | review | first midterm | ||

10/13/14 | go over midterm 1.13 Parallelograms and trapezoids |

12/1/14 | similarities (Oleg Viro, revised by Olga Plamenevskaya) | 3.6 Pythagorean theorem, and review | Here are some optional problems. Read section 3.6 Do, but don't hand in: Find a proof of the Pythagorean theorem which is different from the one in 3.6 or the one discussed in class, and learn it. |
