Angles and Polygons
Students focus on understand how manipulating objects in a 2D and 3D plane can be expressed through Mathematics. Topics like angles, polygons, transformations, perimeter, area and volume are explored.
Students learn how to identify angles by estimating their angles and classifying them as acute, obtuse, right or straight.
Students learn how to create and measure angles using a protractor.
Students explore what polygons, what makes a polygon and the different types of polygons.
Students explore the different types of triangles: equatorial, isosceles, scalene and the angles related to each triangle.
Students learn about interior angles of triangles and quadrilaterals. How the sum of these polygons are always the same and what relationships that implies.
Students explore what the word congruent means and how concurrency applies to polygons.
Students explore how to transform or manipulate polygons on a Cartesian plane.
Students explore how to measure and describe transformation on a Cartesian plane.
Students explore how to combined transformation in succession.
This is an assignment that allows students to explore how to apply the skills they have learned in Grade 6 to plan out a hypothetical store as a project.
