RE: Standards Clarification document

Grace, Back in April when this all came out, AMTNYS put the following out on this listserv that talked about the transition year(s) in respect to the definitions, so there shouldn?t be a worry for this year?s kids:
There are currently two different, widely accepted definitions of a trapezoid:
The ?inclusive? definition states that a trapezoid is a quadrilateral with at least one pair of parallel sides.
The ?exclusive? definition states that a trapezoid is a quadrilateral with exactly one pair of parallel sides.
New York State?s 2014 mathematics assessments in grades 38 will not favor the use of either definition. Beginning in 2015, questions may appear on all of New York?s Common Core mathematics assessments (including grades 38 and Regentslevel Geometry) that require students to know and apply the ?inclusive? definition. For all remaining Regents Exams in mathematics that measure the 2005 Revised Standards and Core Curriculum, students will not be penalized for using either definition.
If you have any further questions, please free to contact the Office of Curriculum and Instruction at emscurric@mail.nysed.com<mailto:emscurric@mail.nysed.com> or the Office of State Assessment at emscassessinfo@mail.nysed.gov<mailto:emscassessinfo@mail.nysed.gov>.

I am so concerned for students this year if there is a trapezoid question ... I don't even think many teachers even know there is a different definition ... how is SED notifying the teachers ... there needs to be many more examples  especially about the isosceles trapezoid ... we do not need teachers or students freaking out more than they will be ...

I assume that all the states under PARCC are now using this definition. Is this correct? Can someone tell me if these statements would be correct under the new definition?
Does the new definition mean 1. all parallelograms, rectangles, rhombuses, and squares are trapezoids 2. some trapezoids are parallelograms, rectangles, rhombuses and squares 3. all rectangles and squares are isosceles trapezoids 3. some isosceles trapezoids are rectangles and squares For the standards would students then have a proof something like GC).11 A rhombus is a trapezoid with perpendicular diagonals We used to have a chart trapezoid on one side and a parallelogram on the other ... is there another chart that includes the isosceles trapezoid?
Thanks for your help Grace Wilkie

Is there a place where I can find all of the "important" documents for CC Geometry online? I find the engageNY website difficult to navigate.
Thanks!

Does anyone know where I can find the Geometry standards clarification document? Can someone post a link or copy of the document? ******************************************************************* * To unsubscribe from this mailing list, email the message * "unsubscribe nyshsmath" to majordomo@mathforum.org<mailto:majordomo@mathforum.org> * * Read prior posts and download attachments from the web archives at * http://mathforum.org/kb/forum.jspa?forumID=671 *******************************************************************
