Enduring Understandings
• Your measurements are only as accurate as the tools you use.
• There are relationships between different shapes’ areas and perimeters.
• Customary, metric, and non-standard units are used to approximate and compute measurements and communicate their validity.
Lesson 1:Measuring Objects
• Objective: The learner will investigate the different measuring tools and be able to choose the most effective for a given object.
• Learning Strategies: Hands-on, Quad-Entry Diary, Think-Pair-Share, Exit Slip
Lesson 2: Perimeter
• Objective: The learner will calculate the perimeter of a given geometric figure and discuss the relationships between different object’s perimeters.
• Learning Strategies: Think-Pair-Share, Quad-Entry Diary, Exit Slip
• Tools: Perimeter Explorer, Spaghetti and Meatballs for All by Marilyn Burns
Lesson 3: Converting the Metric System and Using Conversion Factors
• Objective: The learner will measure using the metric system and convert within that system. Also, they will discuss the unit of measurement most appropriate for a given situation and why.
• Learning Strategies: Think-Pair-Share, Quad-Entry Diary, Hands-On
• Tools: Millions to Measure by David Schwartz
Lesson 4: Area of Squares and Rectangles
• Objective: The learner will demonstrate the different types of squares and rectangles using geoboards and note the changes in its area and perimeter.
• Learning Strategies: Hands-on (kinesthetic learners), Quad-Entry Diary
• Tools: Geoboards
Lesson 5: Area of Triangles
• Objective: The learner will find the area of triangles and discuss the relationship between the area of triangles with the area of squares and rectangles.
• Learning Strategies: Quad-Entry Diary, Hands-on, Think-Pair-Share
• Tools: Geoboards, Triangle Explorer
Lesson 6: Area of Parallelograms
• Objective: The learner will discuss the relationship between the area of rectangles and triangles with the area of parallelograms. They will work on a computer using a program which lets them construct shapes and visually see these relationships.
• Learning Strategies: Bell-ringer, Quad-Entry Diary
Lesson 7: Discovering Pi
• Objective: The learner will demonstrate the origin of pi by measuring the circumference and diameter of different objects. The learner will create the equation to find the circumference of a circle, given its diameter or radius.
• Learning Strategies: Cooperative Learning, Quad-Entry Diary, Hands-on, Exit Slip
• Tools: The Joy of Pi by David Blatner
Lesson 8: Area of Circles
• Objective: The learner will develop the formula for the area of a circle by manipulating circles and seeing the relationship between them and parallelograms/rectangles.
• Learning Strategies: Hands-on, Quad-Entry Diary, Different Learning Styles, Exit Slip
Lesson 9: Area of Irregular Figures
• Objective: The learner will find the area of any irregular figures and discuss the relationship between irregular figures and regular polygons.
• Learning Strategies: Bell-ringer, Think-Pair-Share
