2-D Geometry
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

In this unit students will build upon their experiences with geometry in earlier grades. Seventh grade students use these skills to informally construct geometric figures.

Manipulatives, dynamic geometry, and tools like rulers and protractors will be particularly helpful with this unit. A particular focus in this unit is the construction of triangles when given combinations of measures of three angles and/or sides. Students will investigate which of these combinations create unique triangles, more than one triangle, or no triangle at all. Students will use the angle-angle criterion to determine similarity.

Angle relationships generated by intersecting lines including supplementary, complementary, adjacent, and vertical angles are also used in problem solving. Using these relationships, students will make conjectures and solve multistep problems with angles created by parallel lines cut by a transversal. They will also examine both angle sums of polygons and exterior angles.

Students will know and use formulas for the area and circumference of a circle and be able to determine the relationship between them.

6th Grade Ratios and Proportional Relationships Unit
Conditions of Use:

In this part of the unit on ratios and proportions, students will use ratio language to write ratios in a real-world context.  They will be architects who are designing an amusement park, an aquarium research center, or a baseball stadium.  Students will write equivalent ratios and use them to make their building a physically safe space that meets all building requirements.  During this project, students will also be converting between units (e.g., inches and feet) as they find equivalent ratios.  After students have made all of their calculations, they will analyze another set of design specifications and create a presentation explaining whether these new specifications would result in an architecturally safe building.  Students will use their math calculations from the design challenge to justify their answers.
