Component  8.G.1.a:
Lines are taken to lines, and line segments to line segments of the same length. 
Component  8.G.1.b:
Angles are taken to angles of the same measure. 
Component  8.G.1.c:
Parallel lines are taken to parallel lines.


Emphasis: MStandard  8.G.2:
Understand that a twodimensional figure is congruent to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, and translations; given two congruent figures, describe a sequence that exhibits the congruence between them. 
Emphasis: MStandard  8.G.3:
Describe the effect of dilations, translations, rotations, and reflections on twodimensional figures using coordinates. 
Emphasis: MStandard  8.G.4:
Understand that a twodimensional figure is similar to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, translations, and dilations; given two similar twodimensional figures, describe a sequence that exhibits the similarity between them. 
Emphasis: MStandard  8.G.5:
Use informal arguments to establish facts about the angle sum and exterior angle of triangles, about the angles created when parallel lines are cut by a transversal, and the angleangle criterion for similarity of triangles. For example, arrange three copies of the same triangle so that the sum of the three angles appears to form a line, and give an argument in terms of transversals why this is so.



Emphasis: MEPStandard  8.G.6:
Explain a proof of the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse. 
Emphasis: MEPStandard  8.G.7:
Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to determine unknown side lengths in right triangles in realworld and mathematical problems in two and three dimensions. 
Emphasis: MEPStandard  8.G.8:
Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to find the distance between two points in a coordinate system.



Emphasis: AStandard  8.G.9:
Know the formulas for the volumes of cones, cylinders, and spheres and use them to solve realworld and mathematical problems.
