To learn the pattern of the side lengths of a 45-45-90 triangle, students complete a gallery walk, a card sort activity starting with using the Pythagorean theorem, and activity to locate if there is an error in a presented problem and if so to identify what the error is.
Study Edge Physics
In Physics, students will conduct laboratory and field investigations, use scientific methods during investigations, and make informed decisions using critical thinking and scientific problem solving. Students study a variety of topics that include: laws of motion; changes within physical systems and conservation of energy and momentum; forces; thermodynamics; characteristics and behavior of waves; and atomic, nuclear, and quantum physics. Students who successfully complete Physics will acquire factual knowledge within a conceptual framework, practice experimental design and interpretation, work collaboratively with colleagues, and develop critical thinking skills (TAC §112.39(b)(1)).

Using Logical Reasoning to Prove Conjectures about Circles
Given conjectures about circles, the student will use deductive reasoning and counterexamples to prove or disprove the conjectures.
Drawing Conclusions about Three-Dimensional Figures from Nets
Given a net for a three-dimensional figure, the student will make conjectures and draw conclusions about the three-dimensional figure formed by the given net.
Generalizing Geometric Properties of Ratios in Similar Figures
Students will investigate patterns to make conjectures about geometric relationships and apply the definition of similarity, in terms of a dilation, to identify similar figures and their proportional sides and congruent corresponding angles.
Determining Area: Sectors of Circles
Students will use proportional reasoning to develop formulas to determine the area of sectors of circles. Students will then solve problems involving the area of sectors of circles.
Making Conjectures About Circles and Segments
Given examples of circles and the lines that intersect them, the student will use explorations and concrete models to formulate and test conjectures about the properties and relationships among the resulting segments.
Determining Area: Regular Polygons and Circles
The student will apply the formula for the area of regular polygons to solve problems.
Making Conjectures About Circles and Angles
Given examples of circles and the lines that intersect them, the student will use explorations and concrete models to formulate and test conjectures about the properties of and relationships among the resulting angles.
Solving Problems With Similar Figures
Given problem situations involving similar figures, the student will use ratios to solve the problems.
Newton's Law of Inertia
This resource provides instructional resources for Newton's First Law, the law of inertia.
Newton's Law of Action-Reaction
This resource is to support TEKS (8)(6)(C), specifically the Newton's third law or the law of action-reaction.
