Introduce learners to area and square units. They look at a bird's-eye view map of a school and answer questions about different buildings' areas. They draw squares and rectangles on a piece of graph paper and find the area of the shapes. A comprehensive lesson with a great, engaging opener!
Ninth graders review the meaning of plane figures before completing guided practice in the use of graph paper and protractors to find the area of given plane figures. Finally, they complete a student practice exercise in which they apply the lessons from guided practice.
Ninth graders participate in guided practice as they determine methods to find the area of plane figures. They use graph paper, as they determine the relationship of the side of a square to the area of a square. After completing that they move on to rectangles, triangles, circles,and parallelograms. Finally, they problem solve on an independent student practice sheet.
Young mathematicians draw, create, and describe different shapes using triangles. They discuss attributes of the original and created shapes. Pupils classify the created shapes and draw and write in mathematics journals to communicate what they recall. Students see the relationship between two shapes, such as how two triangles can make a square.
Student use a variety of methods and tools to construct and compare the area of plane figures. They discuss how to create a plane figure and discuss examples of plane figures. Students use a graph to visualize the relationship of the side of square and the area of a square.
