Area: It's What's on the INSIDE That Counts!
Second graders participate in a series of hands-on, online and multimedia activities that examine the concept of area. They view clips from the animated series Math Monsters and discuss the purpose of area and how it is used in the real world.
Students explore "area." In this tangram geometry and measurement lesson, students arrange tangram pieces to find the area of characters presented in a story they listen to on a website. Website information and related worksheets are included.
Fifth graders apply the symmetry and angle properties of polygons and use fractions to express the relationships between the areas of rectangles, squares, and triangles. They analyze various country flags and develop mathematical statements, use rulers to construct the flag in the problem, and discuss the solution as a class.
Learners, after reviewing the measuring of the lengths of sides of different shapes along with the calculation of their perimeters and areas, encounter what it means by the 'perimeter' of a polygon. They practice measuring units of volume as well as strategies to find the volumes of various solids.
Area of a Parallelogram - Problem Solving 16.3
In this finding areas of parallelogram word problems worksheet, learners find the areas of rectangles, squares, and parallelograms and the perimeters of figures. Students solve five problems.
Area of a Parallelogram reteach 16.3
In this finding the area of a parallelogram worksheet, students use the formulas for areas of rectangles, squares, and parallelograms to solve the areas of each figure. Students solve four problems.
Lunar Meteorite Impact Risks
In this lunar meteorite impact worksheet, learners read about the dangers of meteorite impacts while exploring the moon. Students solve 7 problems including finding the area of the side of the moon that faces the Earth, calculating the average impactzone area for a single event and determining the distances of impacts between craters.
Getting Started with Geometry - Scale Factor
Students explore the concept of scale factors. In this scale factors lesson, students dilate polygons and determine the ratio of the perimeters and areas of an image and pre-image. Students use Ti-Nspires to graph triangles, measure angles, and determine the ratios of images and pre-images.
In this measurement activity, 7th graders solve 14 various types of problems that include completing a table with the base, height, and/or area of triangles and solving a number of word problems with measurement. They also estimate the area and perimeter of a trapezoid and a square. Then, students complete a table that identifies the width, length, height, surface area, and volume of rectangular prisms.
Middle school geometers determine the area of a shape on a geoboard or dot paper and draw figures that meet given area conditions. Working as a class, they develop and discuss various ways to draw geometric shapes with specified properties. Using the provided worksheet, they create geometric figures according to the teacher's directions.
The Pythagorean Theorem
Students create both a visual and formal proof of the Pythagorean theorem, as well as view four additional geometric demonstrations of the theorem. They construct a square and conjecture the following theorem: The sum of the areas of the squares on the legs of a right triangle is equal to the area of the square on the hypotenuse.
Area and Perimeter
In this area and perimeter worksheet, 10th graders solve and complete 18 various types of geometry problems. First, they find the area of a figure shown with consecutive sides perpendicular. Then, students find the area and perimeter of an equilateral triangle with a given height. They also find the radius, apothem and area of a square whose perimeter is given.
Cosmic Rays and Solar Cells
In this cosmic rays and solar cells activity, students read about how cosmic rays damage the electrical output of solar cells over time on satellites. Students use a graph of the solar power output compared to the year for the SOHO satellite and answer 4 questions about its power changes over time.
Areas of States - Estimation
Students estimate the area of states using the formulas for the areas of rectangles, squares, and triangles. In this geometric shapes lesson, students divide irregular shaped states into shapes. They use the formulas for areas of geometric shapes to estimate the area of the state.
Math Lesson Plan: How to Calculate Area
Define area and calculate the area of squares and rectangles with your class. The lesson begins with direct instruction, but learners get some hands-on practice finding area, too. They measure construction paper shapes with a ruler.
Lesson 3: Area
Students review the concepts of area, surface area, volume, and perimeter. Using the provided worksheets, the students demonstrate their ability to calculate area, volume, and perimeter.
Pythagorean Theorem: Triangles and Their Sides
Students investigate triangles and their relationship to each other. In this geometry lesson, students solve right triangles using the properties of the Pythagorean Theorem. They differentiate between right, acute, straight and oblique triangles.
Squares and Square Roots
Students use a dot table to draw squares and then describe the diagonals using the square root formula. In this square root lesson plan, students use the Pythagorean Theorem to check their answers.
Squares on a Triangle
Students explore the concept of triangles. In this triangle lesson, students determine whether a triangle is acute, right, or obtuse using the Pythagorean theorem. Students derive the law of cosines from the Pythagorean theorem.
Around and About
Fourth graders will be able to use a grid to calculate the perimeter and area of a square or rectangle and use measuring tools to measure and calculate the perimeter and area of a rectangle or square.
