Students create a square with 36 square tiles and determine that sliding several of the pieces both vertically and horizontally, they form an irregular shape that can be tessellated. They are given a variety of curved shapes and use tape and scissors to reconfigure their shape back into a square.
Students explore parts of triangles.  For this triangle properties lesson, students examine the relationship between the legs and the hypotenuse of a triangle.  They use models of triangles to examine the Pythagorean Theorem.  Students use the Pythagorean Theorem to solve real world problems.
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.
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.
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.
Students, 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.
In this finding areas of parallelogram word problems instructional activity, students find the areas of rectangles, squares, and parallelograms and the perimeters of figures. Students solve five problems.
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.
For 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.
In this lunar meteorite impact worksheet, students 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.
In this measurement worksheet, 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.
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.
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.
In this cosmic rays and solar cells worksheet, 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.
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.
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.
Young scholars 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.
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.
Tenth graders investigate the parts of the pythagorean theorem. In this geometry lesson plan, 10th graders practice the pythagorean theorem by identifying and solving sides of a right triangles. This assignment is interactive and requires the internet.
