## Pod : Issues Of Alignment

**Webinar**. The Common Core State Standards for Mathematics and English Language Arts have been adopted by the Maine Legislature and are;incorporated into the Maine Learning Results. Full transition to these standards is expected by the 2014-15 school year. In an effort to support the transitioning work, the Maine Department of Education’s Mathematics Specialist Michele Mailhot presents this webinar, exploring the topic of alignment to standards, definitions of what it means to be aligned and methods for determining degree of alignment in your school or classroom. Several resources for supporting curriculum work and standards transition are offered. Participants should have a copy of the;Common Core State Standards;ready for perusal during the session.

## Grade 8 Mathematics Module 2

**Grade 8 Module 2: The Concept of Congruence**

In this module, students learn about translations, reflections, and rotations in the plane and, more importantly, how to use them to precisely define the concept of congruence. Throughout Topic A, on the definitions and properties of the basic rigid motions, students verify experimentally their basic properties and, when feasible, deepen their understanding of these properties using reasoning. All the lessons of Topic B demonstrate to students the ability to sequence various combinations of rigid motions while maintaining the basic properties of individual rigid motions. Students learn that congruence is just a sequence of basic rigid motions in Topic C, and Topic D begins the learning of Pythagorean Theorem.

The student materials consist of the student pages for each lesson in Module 2.

The copy ready materials are a collection of the module assessments, lesson exit tickets and fluency exercises from the teacher materials.
