About the Course
Designed to provide consistency to language arts and math learning in all states, the Common Core State Standards address basic concepts in these two content areas for students in grades K-12. This geometry course meets 6th grade math standards and focuses on shapes and various methods for measuring these shapes. Through fun and engaging videos and assessment quizzes, your students can learn how to determine volume, perimeter, circumference, area and surface area. Concepts you can expect to cover in these lessons include:
- Interpreting scale drawings
- Reviewing the use of tools to create geometric constructions
- Identifying types of geometric construction
- Discussing 3-D figures
- Defining surface area and prisms
- Calculating measurements for the following shapes:
- Complex figures
These lessons can benefit those middle school students who are finding geometry to be a challenging subject and might grasp the concepts more easily through the use of visual study. You might use the videos as a visual aid when teaching in the classroom, or you might assign these videos as homework and have students review them and take the accompanying lessons to gauge what they have learned.
Scale Drawings (CCSS.Math.Content.7.G.A.1)
Standard: Solve problems involving scale drawings of geometric figures, including computing actual lengths and areas from a scale drawing and reproducing a scale drawing at a different scale.
In this lesson, students learn how to apply concepts in solving problems with geometric figures.
Geometric Construction (CCSS.Math.Content.7.G.A.2)
Standard: Draw (freehand, with ruler and protractor, and with technology) geometric shapes with given conditions. Focus on constructing triangles from three measures of angles or sides, noticing when the conditions determine a unique triangle, more than one triangle, or no triangle.
This lesson helps students understand how to use tools, such as compass and protractor, to create geometric shapes.
3-D Figures (CCSS.Math.Content.7.G.A.3)
Standard: Describe the two-dimensional figures that result from slicing three-dimensional figures, as in plane sections of right rectangular prisms and right rectangular pyramids.
Use this lesson to demonstrate the views of 3-D figures.
Circumference of Circles (CCSS.Math.Content.7.G.B.4)
Standard: Know the formulas for the area and circumference of a circle and use them to solve problems; give an informal derivation of the relationship between the circumference and area of a circle.
Students can learn the formulas used to determine the area and circumference of circles.
Standard: Use facts about supplementary, complementary, vertical, and adjacent angles in a multi-step problem to write and solve simple equations for an unknown angle in a figure.
Use these lessons to teach how to apply relevant formulas to determine angles.
Area & Volume (CCSS.Math.Content.7.G.B.6)
Standard: Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, volume and surface area of two- and three-dimensional objects composed of triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, cubes, and right prisms.
This lesson shows students how to determine the area, volume and surface area of various geometric shapes.
