Math Notes

Unit 12 and 13 will cover geometric concepts.  

This will cover Minnesota Math Standards: 

      • Describe and classify three-dimensional figures including cubes, prisms and pyramids by the number of edges, faces or vertices as well as the types of faces. 

      • Recognize and draw a net for a three-dimensional figure. 
      • Develop and use formulas to determine the area of triangles, parallelograms and figures that can be decomposed into triangles. 
      • Use various tools and strategies to measure the volume and surface area of objects that are shaped like rectangular prisms. 
      • Develop and use the formulas V = ℓwh and V = Bh to determine the volume of rectangular prisms. Justify why base area B and height h are multiplied to find the volume of a rectangular prism by breaking the prism into layers of unit cubes.
