In this unit, students will:
- Draw geometric figures using rulers and protractors with emphasis on triangles.
- Write and solve equations involving angle relationships.
- Explore two-dimensional cross-sections of cylinders, cones, pyramids, and prisms.
- Know and use the formula for the circumference and area of a circle.
- Solve engaging problems that require determining the area, volume, and surface areas of the fundamental solid figures.
- MCC7.G.2 - Draw geometric shapes with given conditions. Focus on constructing triangles from three measures of angles or sides, noticing when the conditions determine a unique triangle, more than one triangle, or no triangle.
- MCC7.G.3 - Describe the two-dimensional figures that result from slicing three-dimensional figures, as in plane sections of right triangular prisms and right rectangular pyramids.
- MCC7.G.4 - Know the formulas for the area and circumference of a circle and use them to solve problems, give an informal derivation of the relationship between the circumference and area of a circle.
- MCC7.G.5 - Use facts about supplementary, complementary, vertical, and adjacent angles in a multi-step problem to write and solve simple equations for an unknown angle in a figure.
- MCC7.G.6 - Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, volume, and surface area of two- and three- dimensional objects composed of triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, cubes, and right prisms.
