In this lesson, students engage in interesting hands-on activities that help them discover the properties of parallel, perpendicular, and intersecting lines. Your little mathematicians will have a blast as they learn about geometry.
Perpendicular, intersect, parallel! In this lesson, students work in teams to complete a Frayer Model on each of these terms to become masters of geometry vocabulary. Teach this lesson on its own or as support to the lesson What's My Line?
Your students will become junior math detectives as they hunt down the missing side of a rectangle by applying the area formula for rectangles. The only clues they have are the rectangle's area and the measure of one side.
Students will use the inverse relationship between multiplication and division to complete an area formula in a real-world situation. Use this lesson on its own or as support for the lesson The Case of the Missing Rectangle Side.
Teach your students to find the perimeter of polygons using real world examples. They will make polygon pictures using tangrams and practice finding the perimeters of the polygons in their masterpieces.
Facilitate rich math conversations with this lesson on finding the missing information in problems related to the area of rectangles and squares. It may be taught by itself or used as support to the lesson Finding Area: Furnishing A Room.
