Unit 4: Geometry
This unit focuses on how to teach students to draw geometric figures using rulers and protractors with an emphasis on triangles. Students will also explore two-dimensional cross sections of cylinders, cones, pyramids, and prisms. Their knowledge from 6th grade will help when they are learning to write and solve equations involving angle relationships and when solving engaging problems that require determining the area, volume, and surface area of fundamental solid figures. This unit also requires students to know and use the formula for the circumference and area of a circle.
GEOMETRIC & SPATIAL REASONING – vertical, adjacent, complementary, and supplementary angles, circumference and area of circles, area and surface area, volume of cubes, right prisms, and cylinders.
7.GSR.5 Solve practical problems involving angle measurement, circles, area of circles, surface area of prisms and cylinders, and volume of cylinders and prisms composed of cubes and right prisms.
