What You Need To Know...

MAFS.912.G-CO.3.11 - prove theorems about parallelograms; use theorems about parallelograms to solve problems.

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. Items may require students to sequence the steps of a construction, explain the steps of a construction or complete a viable geometric argument.

3. Theorems are restricted to opposite sides are congruent; opposite angles are congruent; the diagonals of a parallelogram bisect each other; and conversely, rectangles are parallelograms with congruent diagonals.

4. Items may ask students to classify a quadrilateral as a parallelogram based on given properties or measures or to prove a quadrilateral is a parallelogram.

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

Which statement best explains why the equation x + 5 = 2x - 3 can be used to solve for x?

  1. All four sides of a rhombus are congruent.
  2. Opposite sides of a rhombus are parallel.
  3. Diagonals of a rhombus are perpendicular.
  4. Diagonals of a rhombus bisect each other.

Example Six

For his mathematics assignment, Armando must determine the conditions that will make quadrilateral ABCD, shown below, a parallelogram.

 8-4.jpg

Given that the m∠ DAB = 40°, which of the following statements will guarantee that ABCD is a parallelogram?

  1. m∠ ADC + m∠ DCB + m∠ ABC + 40°  = 360°.  
  2. m∠ DCB  = 40°; m∠ ABC  = 140° 
  3. m∠ ABC + 40° = 180° 
  4. m∠ DCB  = 40°
