Lesson Plan: Projections Mathematics
This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to find the projection of a point, a line segment, a ray, or a line on another line and find the length of the projection.
Students will be able to
- find the projection of a point on a straight line,
- find the projection of a line segment on a straight line and find the length of the projection,
- find the projection of a ray or a line onto another line.
Students should already be familiar with
- points, line segments, rays, and lines,
- the Pythagorean theorem.
Students will not cover
- vector projections.
