# Q4, W1: March 25th – 29th

Teacher Felicia Taylor Intensive Math 6th 28 Focus 8: Geometry
Standard(s) Taught

#### Find the area of right triangles, other triangles, special quadrilaterals, and polygons by composing into rectangles or decomposing into triangles and other shapes; apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students are successful when they can…

• reason that familiar shapes can be put together to create
composite shapes whose area is equal to that part of the sum of
the areas of the joining shapes. For example, show the area
formula for a parallelogram by composing it into rectangles.
• model composite shares and their decomposition with hands-on
materials such as attribute shapes, Power Polygons™, and
tangrams.
• decompose composite shapes into familiar shapes and use the
areas of the familiar shapes to find the area of the composite
shapes.
• generalize and clarify understanding of how the area of a shape
is the sum of the areas of the shapes that make up the
composite shapes.
• solve problems from the real-world using composite figures to
model real-world examples such as the size of a late or a crater
on the moon.
• determine the area of a missing region using composition and
decomposition of polygons.
