Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.
Students will use a variety of methods to locate a point to partition a line segment to a given ratio. The activities will range from informal student definitions and sketches to tasks using number lines and the coordinate plane.
This geometry lesson focuses on partitioning a segment on a coordinate grid in a non-traditional and interesting format. Students will complete a series of problems to determine which farmers are telling the truth about their harvested "Geometrees."
Partition, what's that? Well come find out as you learn to break it down, a segment that is. Learn the basic skills of partitioning and you can turn your class into a partitioning party; just BYOGP (Bring your own graph paper).
