MAFS.912.G-CO.3.10 - Prove theorems about triangles.

1. The benchmark will be assessed using Drag and Drop Response, Hot Text Response, Movable Text Response, Multi-select Response, Multiple choice Response, Open Response, or Selectable Text.

2. Theorems are restricted to: measures of interior angles of a triangle sum to 180°; base angles of isosceles triangles are congruent; the segment joining midpoints of two sides of a triangle is parallel to the third side and half the length; the medians of a triangle meet at a point.

3. Items can include narrative proofs, flow-chart proofs, two-column proofs, or informal proofs.

4. Items may require students to give statements and/or justifications to complete formal and informal proofs.

## Example Three
