In Motion Geometry, students study concepts of geometry they will use throughout middle grade and higher-level courses. The problems help them develop the spatial reasoning they can apply to other topics such as number, measurement, proportional reasoning, and graphing on the coordinate plane.
RMU is designed to help middle-grades students gain a deeper understanding of important mathematics topics. Each unit features topics developed through problem solving; concepts developed over time; problems that invite communication among students leading to critical thinking; problems that help students make connections among topics; and labs for more intense study. Each unit includes teacher notes, blackline student masters, and suggested assessments. Use RMU as the basis for a curriculum program or to complement your current program. Choose topics according to your students' needs.
