Geometry ProblemTechnologyRelative AdvantageExpected Outcome
1. Access to a Graphing Calculator, for calculations, graphing functions, or plotting data.DesmosOnline graphing calculator is available online from a browser, Google add-on, or app download on smartphones or tablets when a handheld is unavailable.Access when students cannot afford a handheld. Practice using online calculator, similar to ones used during computer assessments. Calculations, graphs, and table images may be used in digital products.
2. Modeling and manipulating 2D or 3D shapes.GeoGebraInteractive mathematics software that allows teachers and students to view shared math content or create their own models that may be observed, rotated, moved, or manipulated.Math manipulatives and models are created digitally. May be used in whole group, small group, or individual instruction. May be used as digital products for projects.
3. Use geometric shapes, their measures, and their properties to describe objects (CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.HSG.MG.A.1)Google DrawingShapes, angles, and distances may be drawn digitally to model real life objects accurately.Pictures of real objects may be uploaded and diagrams may be drawn directly on the uploaded image, allowing students to see the connect between the model and actual object. Students will see how math appropriates in real life. Drawings may be used by themselves or with other Google Apps to create products for projects.
4. Predict and measure angle measures of objects in space.ICamera ProtractorProjects a protractor on the live image or taken photo of an object.Students will see that every object in space contains lines and angles. Measurements can be used to gauge predictions on angle measurements, as well as data for other geometric calculations.
5. Use coordinates to compute perimeters of polygons and areas of triangles and rectangles. (CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.HSG.GPE.B.7)Geometry PadCreate geometric shapes on a coordinate plane to explore their properties.Students can manipulate the properties and coordinates of shapes to explore the connection between Algebra and Geometry.
6. Apply geometric methods to solve design problems. (CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.HSG.MG.A.3)SketchupCreate 3D designs online by drawing lines and shapes. See the relevance of math and design in real life applications, such as architectural or engineering designs. Similar to CADD software.
7. Students are in need of personalized homework to target knowledge gaps. MyMathLabOffers adaptive learning based on student performance.Study guides and assignments are based on students' performance. This allows for targeted instruction to address missing knowledge and prerequisites.
8. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. (CCSS.MATH.PRACTICE.MP3)

Google DriveStudents can create products using Google Apps to present their arguments and share with classmates and teachers.Google Drive allows collaboration between students. Critiquing, revising, and defending of arguments is made possible online.
9. Specify a sequence of transformations that will carry a given figure onto another.(CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.HSG.CO.A.5)

Calculation Nation: Flip-n-SlideWithin a game, students will use transformations to move one figure onto another.In a fun and engaging way, students can explore how different geometric transformations change or move a figure.
Use geometric descriptions of rigid motions to transform figures and to predict the effect of a given rigid motion on a given figure; given two figures, use the definition of congruence in terms of rigid motions to decide if they are congruent. (CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.HSG.CO.B.6)
Illuminations: Congruence TheoremsStudents explore which parts of a figure guarantee congruence through an investigative task.Rather than reading a textbook or taking notes, students can explore and develop congruence theorems through trial and error.
