Setting the Stage with Geometry

This Setting the Stage with Geometry unit also includes:

Young mathematicians rock out with The Geometrics and their stage crew as they learn about the properties of two- and three-dimensional shapes. By the end of this three-lesson series, students will have no problem caluculating the perimeter, area, surface area, and volume of common geometric shapes.

Instructional Ideas

  • Supplement this lesson series into an upper-elementary or middle school geometry unit
  • Use the take-home activities as homework assignments following each lesson
  • When solving the various story problems, provide independent work time before allowing the class to discuss their solutions with a partner or small group
  • Extend these lessons by having learners measure the area, perimeter, surface area, and volume of real-life objects
Pros

  • A clear learning objective is provided for each of the three lessons
  • Each lesson is supported with accompanying worksheets and take-home activities
  • Presents a number of real-world contexts for applying knowledge about geometric shapes
Cons

  • None
