Concept and/or Topic: Geometry

Intended Purpose: Extension/Enrichment Activity

Domain: Geometry

Standards Addressed:

Boxes 1 and 2:

5.G.3: Understand that attributes belonging to a category of two-dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category.

Boxes 3 and 4:

5.G.4: Classify two-dimensional figures in a hierarchy based on properties.

6.G.4: Represent three-dimensional figures using nets made up of rectangles and triangles, and use the nets to find the surface area of these figures. Apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.

Box 5:

5.G.4: Classify two-dimensional figures in a hierarchy based on properties.

Box 6:

Mathematical Practice #9: Solve problems in novel ways and pose new mathematical questions of interest to investigate.

Box 7:

5.G.3: Understand that attributes belonging to a category of two-dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. (Introduce parts of a circle.)

Box 8:

Mathematical Practice #9: Solve problems in novel ways and pose new mathematical questions of interest to investigate.

Box 9

Mathematical Practice #9: Solve problems in novel ways and pose new mathematical questions of interest to investigate.
