Essential Question

How do we identify geometric shapes?

There are many different

geometric shapes.

polygonpolygon – a closed figure made up of three or more line segments.

Examples: The following are examples of polygons:

The figure below is not a polygon, since it is not a closed figure:

irregular polygon

irregular polygon- a polygon that has sides of various lengths and angles.

parallelogramparallelogram- a shape that has four sides where the opposite sides are equal in length and parallel.

parallelogramparallelogram - a four-sided polygon with two pairs of parallel sides. The sum of the angles of a parallelogram is 360 degrees. Examples:

rhombus rhombus- a shape that has opposite sides parallel and four sides all of the same length.

rhombusrhombus -a four-sided polygon having all four sides of equal length. The sum of the angles of a rhombus is 360 degrees.

trapezoidtrapezoid – a four sided shape with only 2 parallel lines.

trapezoidtrapezoid - a four-sided polygon having exactly one pair of parallel sides. The two sides that are parallel are called the bases of the trapezoid. Examples:

rectangular prism

rectangular prism – a three dimensional figure with 6 faces - opposite faces are the same size.

90° 90˚

90° 90°

90 x 4 =360 °

quadrilateral quadrilateral - a four-sided polygon. The sum of the angles of a quadrilateral is 360 degrees. Examples:

Essential Question

How many ways can we measure things?

Ways to Measure Length

• Inch •Feet•Yard•Meter•Centimeter

lengthlength -the longest measure of anything. A ruler helps you measure length.

inchinch- a measure of length equal to 1/12 of a foot. A way to measure length. A quarter is about 1 inch.

12 inches = 1 foot

footfoot- 12 inches equals 1 foot. Use a ruler to measure length.

12 inches = 1 foot

yard yard- a unit of measure of 3 feet or 36 inches. Use a yard stick to measure length.

36 inches = 3 feet = 1 yard

centimetercentimeter – Metric Measurement - A unit which is less than an inch or 1/100 of a meter. A way to measure length.

metermeter – the basic unit of length in the MetricSystem which equals about 39 ½ inches. Meter –a way to measure length.
