Standard(s) Taught

Find 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

• 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.

Classroom Activities

In class, we complete the MATH workshop each period. This is a blended, rotation model of teaching where your student is receiving the standards in multiple different settings while completing many different activities. This allows me to have time with your students in a very small group setting to help when necessary further develop the understanding of the standards.

Wednesdays we do not complete our rotation. We work lessons customized to each students level on I-Ready. These lessons are customized to each learning level and scaffolds the current unit for each student allowing advanced students to work ahead and help remediate struggling students.

Assignments Due

The week students will be assigned the following to practice class concepts:

IXL: (Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday)   FF6 and FF8 

students are expected to reach at least an 80% on these assignments. 

Mathspace: (Thursday/Friday) Compound Figures

Additional Resources

If additional help is needed, students are encouraged to view a lesson regarding a given topic on Khan Academy. This website is free and provides both video instruction as well as practice problems. 

Students are able to complete additional practice on both Mathspace and IXL
