We began our third Math Unit this week. It's all about Geometry. For your convenience, I have linked our learning goals and big ideas for this unit of study at the bottom of this post.
Today the boys and girls learned about polygons. They learned that polygons must be closed shapes.
Students also reviewed what they have learned about parallel lines. They have learned that parallel lines never touch and run side by side.
On Thursday, we'll review the names of two dimensional shapes and talk about the word congruent and that it means "same size and same shape". These two attributes are essential in order for a shape to be named congruent.
Students will also learn that a cube and a triangular based pyramid are happy solids because they are made up of only congruent shapes.
