About the Course
The Common Core State Standards have been developed to ensure that students receive a consistent education no matter where they go to school. These standards define the concepts that students need to learn by grade level, assuring parents and educators that their children are developing the skills they will need to be successful later in life.
The resources in this collection align with the Common Core Standards for sixth grade geometry, which require that students be able to solve math and realworld problems that use area and volume. Lessons in the collection will cover the following topics to assist students in meeting these standards:
 Measuring the area of triangles, rectangles and regular polygons
 Formulas for finding the area of parallelograms, rhombuses, trapezoids and other complex figures
 Graphing polygons using the coordinate plane
 Using the distance formula
 Finding the area and volume of prisms
 Determining the surface area of 3dimensional figures
 Identifying the top, side and front view of 3D figures
 Deconstructing 3dimensional figures
Use the engaging videos in this collection to help illustrate concepts to your class. Each video is less than ten minutes long and can easily fit into your existing lesson plan. The interactive quizzes can help with classroom review or be used for homework assignments.
Collection Details
Measuring the Area of 2Dimensional Figures (CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.G.A.1)
Standard: Find the area of right triangles, other triangles, special quadrilaterals, and polygons by composing into rectangles or decomposing into triangles and other shapes; apply these techniques in the context of solving realworld and mathematical problems.
Our lessons will teach students how to find the area of triangles, rectangles, regular polygons, parallelograms, rhombuses, trapezoids and complex figures.
Calculating the Volume of Right Rectangular Prisms (CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.G.A.2)
Standard: Find the volume of a right rectangular prism with fractional edge lengths by packing it with unit cubes of the appropriate unit fraction edge lengths, and show that the volume is the same as would be found by multiplying the edge lengths of the prism. Apply the formulas V = l w h and V = b h to find volumes of right rectangular prisms with fractional edge lengths in the context of solving realworld and mathematical problems.
This lesson on this standard will demonstrate how students can find the area and volume of prisms.
Graphing Polygons on the Coordinate Plane (CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.G.A.3)
Standard: Draw polygons in the coordinate plane given coordinates for the vertices; use coordinates to find the length of a side joining points with the same first coordinate or the same second coordinate. Apply these techniques in the context of solving realworld and mathematical problems.
Students can use the lesson related to this standard to learn how to graph polygons in the coordinate plane and how to use coordinates to determine side lengths of a figure.
Finding the Area of 3Dimensional Shapes Using Nets (CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.G.A.4)
Standard: Represent threedimensional figures using nets made up of rectangles and triangles, and use the nets to find the surface area of these figures. Apply these techniques in the context of solving realworld and mathematical problems.
These lessons will show students the formula used to measure the surface area of 3dimensional shapes as well as how to use nets to solve these types of problems.
