Finding Area of Simple Shapes

Today we began working with area of simple shapes.  Most of you felt pretty comfortable with finding the area of squares and rectangles, but we extended  that to parallelograms and irregular figures.

Take a look at these videos below as a reminder:

Parallelogram video:

Tonight's homework is the simple figures worksheet.  Find area and be sure to label everything with the squared exponent...

Negative Zero?

The News doesn't always get it right...  There is no such thing as -0, and I don't know why it is right next to regular 0.

Stay warm chillins!

Symmetry Reflections Rotations and Slides

Today we reviewed the various different ways we can manipulate images by completing a slide, rotating, reflecting or determining symmetry.  Please consult your notes for information!

Two fun sites to play with to think about these concepts...

Duck:  A game on Hooda Math that plays with symmetry and reflections as well as logic...  Can you beat all 25 levels?

Ambigram maker:  Type in you first name into both fields and see what pops up!!!

Tonight's homework is to complete the Quadrilateral worksheet.  If you need to finish the notes paper, please complete that as well.  We will have a really simple quiz this Thursday on the following items:

  • Polygon definition:  Closed two dimensional figure made of line segments
  • Polygon types: triangle, quadrilateral, pentagon, hexagon, heptagon, octagon, nonagon, decagon
  • Triangles classified by sides:  Equilateral, Isosceles, Scalene
  • Triangles classified by angles: Right, Acute, Obstuse
  • Quadrilateral classifications: Trapezoid, Parallelogram, Rhombus, Rectangle, Square
  • Regular vs. Irregular polygons
Notes from today's lesson:



Various shapes fit into the definitions of different Quadrilaterals:

We'll continue to review tomorrow in class.  As a reminder for tonight's homework, regular polygons have all sides and all angles the same, irregular polygons do not have all sides and all angles the same.

Triangles and Polygons!

We went over a lot of information today, but I think a lot of it was review!  Take a look at the notes from class below if you have questions.  Tonight's homework is to complete both sides of the triangles and polygons worksheet.  Sorry to assign homework over the weekend, but it shouldn't take more than 10 minutes!

Have a great weekend!!!
