Students deepen their understanding of the measurement of plane and solid shapes and use this understanding to solve problems.


hmtoggle_plus16MG.1.1 Understand the concept of a constant such as p; know the formulas for the circumference and area of a circle.



hmtoggle_plus16MG.1.2 Know common estimates of p (3.14; 22/7) and use these values to estimate and calculate the circumference and the area of circles; compare with actual measurements.



hmtoggle_plus16MG.1.3 Know and use the formulas for the volume of triangular prisms and cylinders (area of base x height); compare these formulas and explain the similarity between them and the formula for the volume of a rectangular solid.






Students identify and describe the properties of two-dimensional figures.


hmtoggle_plus16MG.2.1 Identify angles as vertical, adjacent, complementary, or supplementary and provide descriptions of these terms.



hmtoggle_plus16MG.2.2 Use the properties of complementary and supplementary angles and the sum of the angles of a triangle to solve problems involving an unknown angle.



hmtoggle_plus16MG.2.3 Draw quadrilaterals and triangles from given information about them (e.g., a quadrilateral having equal sides but no right angles, a right isosceles triangle).
