## Description

**This resource pack is everything you need to assess and provide intervention for struggling 8th grade students in the domain: Geometry.**

**How do these intervention packs work?
**Starting with a pretest and item analysis of each question on the test, you will be able to pin-point exact needs of all students. From there printables and short assessments are provided for each standard that assess procedural and conceptual understanding. Data charts and documents are provided to help keep you organized and focused during all steps of the intervention process.

Take the guess work out of providing intervention and focus on what is really important… helping your students!

**Geometry Topics Covered
**➥ 8.G.1 – Verify experimentally the properties of rotations, reflections, and translations

➥ 8.G.2 – Using transformations to define congruency

➥ 8.G.3 – Describe the effect of dilations about the origin, translations, rotations about the origin in 90 degree increments, and reflections across the -axis and -axis on two-dimensional figures using coordinates.

➥ 8.G.4 – Use transformations to define similarity.

➥ 8.G.5 – Use informal arguments to analyze angle relationships.

➥ 8.G.6 – Explain the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse.

➥ 8.G.7 – Apply the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse to solve real-world and mathematical problems.

➥ 8.G.8 – Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to find the distance between two points in a coordinate system.

➥ 8.G.9 – Understand how the formulas for the volumes of cones, cylinders, and spheres are related and use the relationship to solve real-world and mathematical problems.

What is procedural understanding?

✓ Houses practice of procedural steps

✓ Requires facts, drills, algorithms, methods, etc.

✓ Based on memorizing steps

✓ Students are learning how to do something

***************************************************************************

What is conceptual understanding?

✓ Understanding key concepts and apply prior knowledge to the new concepts

✓ Understanding why something is done

✓ Making connections & relationships
