Describe and perform transformations of figures in a plane using coordinate notation

Rotating a figure about the origin can be a little tricky, but this tutorial can help! This tutorial shows you how to rotate coordinates from the original figure about the origin. Then, simply connect the points to create the new figure. See this process in action by watching this tutorial!

Verify theorems about the relationships in triangles, including proof of the pythagorean theorem, the sum of interior angles, base angles of isosceles triangles, midsegments, and medians, and apply these relationships to solve problems

Angles are a fundamental building block for creating all sorts of shapes! In this tutorial, learn about how an angle is formed, how to name an angle, and how an angle is measured. Take a look!
