Next Math Unit - Geometry

In math, we have begun learning about 2D geometry. Our first lesson was a review of how to use a protractor to measure angles. Tomorrow we will be learning about a new type of angle - the reflex angle. In this unit we will be learning about classifying shapes according to attributes and learning about concave and convex shapes. Next week, we will begin constructing shapes according to specific parameters. Students usually have a difficult time with this concept. It is helpful if students have their protractors and compasses for this lesson, so please remind your child to bring his/her geometry set next week. Finally, we will be identifying nets of 3D figures and determining if a particular diagram is actually a net of a figure or not, as well as learning about how to draw 3D shapes using isometric dot paper.

I have created an entire unit in Hapara which we will be using to learn from, and for students to review.  If you have any questions about what we are learning, please feel free to take a look at the workspace to see the content being covered. I have included the link below. If it does not work (I am not certain if parents have access to Hapara), then please have your child log in from their school account:
