Today we took a look at line relationships with Lesson 10.1.

Parents: Ask your child to explain the following terms and concepts. Extra dessert tonight if they can explain them and use props to demonstrate.
  • Intersecting lines
  • Perpendicular lines
  • Parallel lines
  • Coplanar lines
  • Skew lines
  • Coincidental lines

The winner for the desmos project was: Favorite Video Game Character. This includes a choice on your part, but make sure there is some way I can tell what it is, don't make me guess because if I can't get it you might lose points! We are also extending the due date for it, since we have had/will have little time for mathia/desmos days in recent weeks, so the new due date is Friday, March 10.
