- Use the correct notation! Answers with incorrect notations will result in an answer being marked as incorrect. Some common notations include:
**Line segment:**Two points with a line over it refers to a line segment. If it does not have a line over two points (e.g. AB), it denotes the length of that line segment**∠ABC:**Name of angle ABC**m∠ABC:**Measure of angle ABC (e.g. 45°)**Congruent (≅)**indicates identical in shape and size. You can say two line segments are congruent ( ≅ ) or two angles are congruent (∠ABC ≅ ∠XYZ)**Equal (=)**indicates same distance or measure. You can say the lengths of two lines segments are equal (AB = CD) or two measures of angles are equal m∠ABC = m∠XYZ

- Uppercase letters ≠ lowercase letters (e.g. Points should be written in uppercase)
- Read each question carefully to understand how the answer should be written or selected on the diagram/drop-down menu

# Geometry Tips

## Answer submission

**Line segments**

- To indicate a line segment, students must place a line above the written endpoints (e.g. not AB)
- First, select the line segment from the math palette and then enter the points

**Incorrect**

**Correct**

**Points**

In Geometry there is a difference between uppercase and lowercase letters – points should be written in uppercase

**Incorrect**

**Correct**

## Read questions carefully

Read the question carefully to determine how your answer should be submitted

**Select on the diagram**

- In the example above, there’s no answer box because the student needs to select the appropriate portions of the diagram by clicking on them

- In the example above, there’s no answer box because the student needs to select the appropriate angle by clicking on it

**Working with π**

- Some questions ask the student to use 3.14 to approximate π

- Other questions require students to submit π in their answers
- For answers that require pi, select it from the math palette

## Multi-part answers

Some questions require students to submit multiple answers per question

**Multi-part answers**

- In this example, the student needs to 1) select the set of parallel lines by clicking on the appropriate lines and 2) choose the correct answer from the drop-down menu

**Proofs**

- Students must fill in all the blanks correctly and choose the correct reasons from the dropdown menu to get the answer correct
