• Unit 1: Area & Surface Area
     
    In this unit, students learn to find areas of polygons by decomposing, rearranging, and composing shapes.  They learn to understand and use the terms "base" and "height," and find areas of parallelograms and triangles.  Students approximate areas of non-polygonal regions by polyngonal regions.  They represent polyhedra with nets and find their surface areas.
     
    Unit 1 Family Resources - This is a nice resource that outlines strategies that we will use during this unit.
     
    Below are links to the student pages (pdf version) of each lesson that are in their class math binders.  Students are welcome to look at these documents at home to have more practice and/or complete the problems that were not completed in class for extra practice.  (We do not always do every problem in every lesson).
