Geometry and Rubik's Cube
Students explore geometry using a Rubik's Cube. In this 2-D and 3-D shapes lesson, students use the Rubik's Cube to find the center, edge and corner pieces. Students then find the dimensions of the Rubik's Cube and read the solution guide. After reading students demonstrate methods and algorithms.
More of Carrie's Cubes
Students solve a word problem that explores the shape of a cube and ways that part of it can be colored. They discuss the problem and analyze a Rubik's cube, explore the problem using a graph, and discuss the solutions as a class.
Geometry Level 3
What a wonderful resource! Learners create two-dimensional shapes according to the instructions stated, use the squares to make a triangular prism, a cube, and a pyramid, and identify features of plane shapes, among a myriad of other activities.
The Painted Cube - ID: 8249
Students investigate volume and surface area. For this Algebra I/Geometry lesson, students explore patterns and algebraic thinking as they visualize dismantling a large cube to determine the number of small cubes having painted faces. Students extend the pattern they observe for a 2 X 2, a 3 X 3, and a 4 X 4 cube as they explore the scatter plot of their data.
The Painted Cube
Tenth graders explore surface area. In this geometry lesson, 10th graders use interactive software to investigate surface area of a cube. The lesson encourages algebraic thinking as patterns are explored.
Cube Coloring Problem
Learners figure out pattern and shapes and the size of cubes. In this geometry lesson, students investigate cubes and solve for the surface area starting with the identification of the different faces. They construct a cube out of paper.
In this cubes worksheet, students answer short answer questions about objects that are cubes. Students also sketch and make cubes.
Geometry History Lesson
Tenth graders investigate the early history of geometry. In this geometry lesson plan, 10th graders investigate translations, rotations, and reflections. They also solve problems with line of symmetry and rotational symmetry while reviewing important symmetry theorem.
Geometry and Shapes
High schoolers discuss and identify polygons and lines. In this geometry lesson, learners review liner, square and cubic units so they can incorporate it into the lesson on measurement and creating packing that are cost effective.
Middle schoolers construct a three-dimensional model of a city using both similar and congruent figures and geometric transformations. City must have at least ten buildings with each building labeled and may be constructed out of paper or modeling clay. A two-dimensional representation, drawn to scale, must be included as well.
Geometry Instructional Strategy
Tenth graders calculate the volume of geometric shapes. In this geometry lesson, 10th graders calculate the volume of cylinders, rectangular cubes and their surface areas. They use their geometric properties and formulas to solve these volume and surface are problems.
Geometry of Shape and Size
Students find the volume of different solids. In this geometry lesson, students define volume of solids and calculate the volume of a cube, prism, pyramid, cylinder, cone and sphere.
Third graders create 3-dimensional models. In this geometry lesson, 3rd graders create 3-dimensional visual representations of cubes that they craft from 2-dimensional examples in order to investigate the differences between the 2.
Building Blocks of Geometry
In this geometry worksheet, students answer questions about midpoints, distance, lines and segments. They are given different shapes and asked to calculate the angles, and sides of polygons.
Zoom-In: Exploring Geometry, Symmetry, and Congruency in the World Around Us (SMART Board)
Students view geometry in the world around them. In this geometry lesson, students look at buildings and find examples of symmetry and geometry. They look for 2D and 3D shapes and congruency.
Students explore points, lines and planes as it relates to geometry. In this geometry lesson, students analyze space and explain wy it is 3-D and not flat or 2-D. They solve problems involving volume and 3-D shapes.
Dissecting the Cube
Students investigate the volume of cones. In this geometry lesson, students define the formula to find the volume of cones. They define the concept of having to dissect a three dimensional figure and find the volume.
Comparing Connecting Cubes Comparing Sets
Young learners write subtraction problems which they model using cubes in order to review counting back. They complete a table that shows how they compare sets.
Geometry is Fun and EverywhereGeometry, You Don’t Care? Geometry is Fun and Everywhere
Third graders investigate shapes in our world. In this geometry activity, 3rd graders describe plane and solid shapes and identify angles, solid objects and lines of symmetry. Students use online resources, graphic organizers and conduct research to gain a better understanding of this geometry unit.
"Talking Geometry" Through Quilts
Third graders use quilts as a visual prompt to review mathematics vocabulary associated with geometry in the third grade curriculum. A hands-on activity serves as a practice and review at the conclusion of this lesson.
