In the spirit of Geoff Krall’s Problem Based Curriculum Maps, I attempted to organize my geometry curriculum and learning targets along with associated activities, tasks & lessons. In order to keep this as a useful document, I tried to only include the tasks that I have actually used in my geometry classes. I am interested in adding & deleting from this document regularly to keep if useful for me (and hopefully others). ~~I plan to have the second semester completed this summer, as I am trying to develop this as I go this school year. ~~

**[update 7/25/16: It is finally completed!]**

I have shamelessly stolen from all over the MTBoS, Math Vision Project, Engage NY & the Unit Blueprints Project and tried to give credit as much as possible.

Please share any criticisms, activities that I should add, activities that are misaligned, etc… in the comments.

Oh my goodness! This is amazing! It almost makes me wish I was teaching geometry… 🙂 I’m definitely going to share this with my teachers. Thanks Lisa!

Lisa, this is an awesome document. I tried to start the year with something like this, but yours is so-well organized. Thanks again for sharing your hard work (and saving me some!).

Thank you! It is a start. I am building it as I go so, I’ll have it complete by the end of the school year. Next year I hope I can just add or delete resources as I go & do another 180 blog.

OMG, Lisa, this is FANTASTIC! I am totally stealing every little last bit of awesomeness here. Thank you for sharing your thoughtful work.

Thanks for sharing! I shared this with all of our graduating secondary math education students as they begin their teaching careers in the fall. What a fantastic resource!

I’m so glad it is useful to others! Thank you!

Thanks for sharing! Your earlier post said you will have it completed soon. If you have an updated copy, where can I get it? Thanks!

I’m so glad you find this useful!

I never did fill in all of those empty details. I still intend to, but I haven’t yet! You can always make a copy and add/delete anything you deem necessary.

Thanks for the nudge! After many hours. I can (finally) consider this completed! You should access the most current version from the link above.

Thank you!

[…] a lot of myself with them. When we understand each other, my classes are more productive. I still make plans, but I allow flexibility to meet my students where they are. I pre-assess their understanding and […]

Thank you for sharing this awesome resource!

[…] I usually use the last six week of the school year in geometry to teach circles: Arc lengths, chords, secants, tangents, etc. Which I have outlined in the Geometry Planning Guide […]

Your planning document was shared with me via Twitter and I am in love. Thank you for putting so much time and effort into this. I have been charged with “rewriting” our standards this year. I’d like to base it off of CCSS and don’t want to reinvent the wheel. Could I steal your work/standards for our upcoming Geometry course?

Of course! That is why I put it here! I’m so glad it is useful for you. If you notice anything I could do to improve it please leave comments on the doc, or let me know.

I just started working on something like this but yours is so much better and amazing. I just cannot find the time to do that during the school year. I am way impressed and I love that you don’t mind sharing.

I so happy it was time well spent! You can also create a copy of the doc and then edit/adapt it to better match your plans.

Thanks you so much for sharing this! It is wonderful and so helpful!

Hi Lisa!

You did an amazing job! Twitter got me here lol I skimmed through your lesson on transformation. I really like you introducing your students with pack man to discover the transformation instead of giving the the definition to them. I recently did a unit plan just on transformation for my credential school class (I will change my distribution of units when I start teaching like yours). I did a plan on reflection, and I showed them a picture of an ambulance car. The “ambulance” is written backwards so they discovered transformation of reflection in real life. Here’s the tool I used to show them the reflection.
