 Unit 6 - geometry and measurement.

 In this unit, your child will:

·         Name and sort triangles by their side lengths, angle measures, and
  angle types.

·         Construct triangles given side lengths and/or angle measures.

·         Sort polygons into sets of regular and irregular polygons, and into sets of
  convex or concave polygons.

·         Demonstrate congruence.

·         Develop and apply formulas to determine:
  – the perimeters of polygons
  – the area of rectangles
  – the volume of rectangular prisms.

 Here are some suggestions for activities you can do at home with your child.

·         Cut cardboard strips of different lengths, then explore different shapes that can
  be made from them. Compare the angles that result.

·         Look for and identify as many 2-D shapes of different types as you can in your environment. Encourage your child to name      each type of shape, and to tell how the shapes are alike and different.  

·         Find the length and width of rectangular-shaped items in your home, such as a table top and the screen of a computer monitor. Have your child find the area and perimeter of each rectangle.

·         Compare the volumes of different rectangular prisms in your home, such as a cereal box and a recycling bin.
