1 Teacher s Guide Grade Level: 6 8 Curriculum Focus: Mathematics Lesson Duration: Three class periods Program Description Discovering Math: Exploring Geometry From methods of geometric construction and threedimensional figures to representations and transformations, introduce students to more advanced properties and concepts of geometry. Lesson Plan Student Objectives Create three-dimensional figures. Construct a three-dimensional model of a city using similar and congruent figures and geometric transformations. Create a two-dimensional representation of their city. Find the surface area of three-dimensional figures. Materials Discovering Math: Exploring Geometry video Building Construction Chart (see below) Surface Area Chart (see below) Models of three-dimensional figures Modeling clay Paper Tape Scissors Measuring tools Compass Cardboard to use as base for city (size to be determined by teacher)

2 Teacher s Guide 2 Procedures 1. Tell students that they will be constructing three-dimensional models of a city. Discuss the directions and parameters of the project. Construct a three-dimensional model of a city that has at least 10 buildings. The buildings must include two similar figures, two congruent figures, and two geometric transformations. Each building must be labeled and the figures used identified in the Building Construction Chart. Use paper or modeling clay to create the three-dimensional figures that will be used to construct the buildings. Add streets to the city using straight edges. o Students should be able to describe the streets using the terms parallel, perpendicular, and intersecting. 2. Ask students to describe surface area Display a three-dimensional figure and model how to calculate its surface area. Remind students to use the Pythagorean theorem when find the length of sides of right triangles. Ask students trade cities with a classmate. Have students calculate the surface area of at least five buildings in their classmate s city. They should use an appropriate measuring tool and record the surface area of each building on the Surface Area Chart. Have students identify parallel, perpendicular, and intersecting streets in the city. 3. Ask students to identify the three types of two-dimensional representations presented in the video. Discuss the properties of planar cross sections, scale drawings, and blueprints. Have students create a two-dimensional representation of their city. Assessment Remind students that two-dimensional representations should be drawn to scale. If needed, drawing to scale should be modeled and explained. Have students share their representations with the class. They should compare their two- and three-dimensional representations of the city and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each type of representations. Use the following three-point rubric to evaluate students work during this lesson. 3 points: Students produced a complete city following all of the parameters; clearly demonstrated the ability to create identify three-dimensional figures; clearly demonstrated the ability to perform geometric transformations; clearly demonstrated the ability to create and identify similar and congruent figures; clearly demonstrated the ability to calculate surface area of three-dimensional figures; and clearly demonstrated the ability to create a two-dimensional representation of a three-dimensional object.

Academic Standards Mid-continent Research for Education and Learning (McREL) McREL s Content Knowledge: A Compendium of Standards and Benchmarks for K 12 Education addresses 14 content areas. To view the standards and benchmarks, visit This lesson plan addresses the following benchmarks: Uses geometric methods (i.e., an unmarked straightedge and a compass using an algorithm) to complete basic geometric constructions (e.g., perpendicular bisector of a line segment, angle bisector). Understands the defining properties of three-dimensional figures (e.g., a cube has edges with equal lengths, faces with equal areas and congruent shapes, right angle corners). Understands the defining properties of triangles (e.g., the sum of the measures of two sides of a triangle must be greater than the measure of the third side). Understands geometric transformations of figures (e.g., rotations, translations, dilations). Understands the relationships between two- and three-dimensional representations of a figure (e.g., scale drawings, blueprints, planar cross sections). Understands the mathematical concepts of similarity (e.g., scale, proportion, growth rates) and congruency. Understands the basic concept of the Pythagorean theorem.

5 Teacher s Guide 5 National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) has developed national standards to provide guidelines for teaching mathematics. To view the standards online, go to This lesson plan addresses the following standards: Precisely describe, classify, and understand relationships among types of two- and three-dimensional objects using their defining properties. Understand relationships among the angles, side lengths, perimeters, areas, and volumes of similar objects. Create and critique inductive and deductive arguments concerning geometric ideas and relationships, such as congruence, similarity, and the Pythagorean relationship. Describe sizes, positions, and orientations of shapes under informal transformations such as flips, turns, slides, and scaling. Examine the congruence, similarity, and line or rotational symmetry of objects using transformations. Use two-dimensional representations of three-dimensional objects to visualize and solve problems such as those involving surface area and volume. Recognize and apply geometric ideas and relationships in areas outside the mathematics classroom, such as art, science, and everyday life.

Basic Geometric Constructions: Introduction Architects and engineers create mechanical drawings to represent future structures. See why accurate lines, angles, and shapes are crucial. Example 1: Copying a Triangle Learn how to create a congruent triangle using a straight edge and compass. Example 2: Constructing an Angle Bisector An angle bisector is a ray that splits an angle into two congruent angles. Learn how to create an angle bisector using a compass and straight edge. Example 3: Constructing a Perpendicular Bisector A perpendicular bisector intersects a line segment, creating four 90-degree angles. Learn how to create a perpendicular bisector using a compass and straight edge. II. Defining Properties of 3-D Figures (8 min.) Defining Properties of 3-D Figures: Introduction A three-dimensional figure has points outside a single plane. Explore the properties of a polyhedron, a 3-D object with polygons as faces. Example 1: Properties of Cubes and Spheres Explore the properties of a cube, a prism with square faces, right angle corners, equal edges, and congruent areas on each face, and a sphere, a three-dimensional object with infinite congruent radii. Example 2: Properties of Rectangular Prisms and Cylinders Investigate the properties of rectangular prisms, three-dimensional figures with congruent rectangular bases and congruent opposite parallelogram faces, and cylinders, three-dimensional objects with congruent parallel circular bases with a connecting surface.

7 Teacher s Guide 7 Example 3: Properties of Pyramids and Cones Explore the properties of pyramids, polygonal bases with triangular faces, and cones, circular bases with a surface created by points on the circle connecting to a non-coplanar point. III. IV. Defining Properties of Triangles (9 min.) Defining Properties of Triangles: Introduction Explore the properties of triangles and see how they can combine to form other shapes. Example 1: Properties of Triangles Triangles have three sides and three angles. The sum of the angles equals 180 degrees, and the sum of the lengths of two sides is always greater than the length of the third side. Example 2: Angles of a Triangle The sum of the angles in a triangle equals 180 degrees. Find out how to calculate an unknown angle measurement in a triangle. Example 3: Special Triangles Explore the properties of unique triangles: Equilateral triangles have equal sides and angles, isosceles triangles have two equal angles and sides, and scalene triangles have three different-size sides and angles. Geometric Transformations (8 min.) Geometric Transformations: Introduction Witness the creation of a fictional planet using geometric shapes and transformations. Use geometric translations, rotations, and dilations to manipulate a shape s size, orientation, or location. Example 1: Translations Geometric translations change a figure s location, but its size and shape remain the same. See how translations create movement that can be measured. Example 2: Rotations Geometric rotations change a figure s orientation and location, but its size and shape remain the same. See how rotations allow a figure to rotate around an axis on a circle. Example 3: Dilations Geometric dilations change a figure s size, but its shape, orientation, and location stay the same. Use a scaling factor to dilate a figure so the new shape is proportional to the original shape. V. Cross-Dimensional Representations (8 min.) Cross-Dimensional Representations: Introduction See how two-dimensional drawings are useful representations of three-dimensional objects. Examples of two-dimensional drawings are scaled drawings, blue prints, architectural plans, and cross sectional drawings.

8 Teacher s Guide 8 Example 1: Scale Drawings A map is an example of a scale drawing, showing one view of a three-dimensional area. Learn how map scales indicate the ratio of a distance on a map to a distance in the real world. Example 2: Blueprints See how architects use blueprints to design a building. Blueprints are two-dimensional models that show the relationships between all parts of the object from one viewpoint at a time. Example 3: Planar Cross Sections Watch seismologists use planar cross sections to study Earth s interior. Planar cross sections are two-dimensional representations that illustrate spatial relationships within an object. VI. VII. Similarity and Congruency (9 min.) Similarity and Congruency: Introduction Congruent figures have exactly the same shape and size, and the ratio of their corresponding parts is 1:1. Similar figures have the same shape but different sizes, and their corresponding parts are proportional. Example 1: Proportion and Scale A model of the United States Capitol represents similar figures. Learn how ratio determines the scale of one object in relation to another. Example 2: Congruence and Similarity Similar objects have the same shape and their corresponding parts have the same ratio. Investigate how all flags are similar. Example 3: Proportionate Growth Ratios show the relationship between measurements. Use ratios to describe the similarities between parent and young sharks and see how they grow proportionally. Pythagorean Theorem (8 min.) Pythagorean Theorem: Introduction Explore the Pythagorean theorem and see how the hypotenuse is the side opposite the right angle in a right triangle. Example 1: An Informal Proof Use the Pythagorean theorem to calculate one side of a right triangle when the measures of the other two sides are known, and see how geometric models explain the theorem. Example 2: Find the Hypotenuse Use the Pythagorean theorem to determine the shortest distance between two locations in Washington, D.C. Example 3: Find the Base Use the Pythagorean theorem to determine the measurements needed to create a new sail for a sailboat.
