Interdisciplinary Curriculum Map

Theme, Enduring Understandings, & Essential Questions for the Map CONTENT AREA(S): Mathematics (Geometry) Theme(s): Using formulas, characteristics of geometric shapes. Enduring Understandings: 1. Understanding the distinguishing characteristics of geometric shapes. 2. Recognizing when and where to use certain formulas to solve problems related to area, perimeter, length, diameter, and circumference. 3. Representing geometric concepts visually. 4. Constructing geometric figures based on their characteristics. 5. Representation of geometric figures on a coordinate plane. 6. Characteristics of similar and congruent shapes. 7. Relationship between 2D and 3D figures. Essential Questions: 1. How can the formulas for the properties of 2D figures be used to derive those of 3D figures? 2. How can we compare the properties of 2D shapes? 3. How do we draw and classify 2D/3D figures? 4. How do geometric relationships and measurements help us to solve real world problems?

How Students will Demonstrate Their Understanding 1. Students will write a reflective journal to explain: What they learned, what they have problems with, what they enjoyed about the lesson and what they didnt enjoy. 2. Students will be given a series of worksheets and homework assignments which will be collected to establish the abilities of the students. 3. Students will work in groups during class time and present their work to the class. 1. Group project on real world applications of the content area. 2. Students will be given bi-weekly quizzes to ensure their understanding of the material. 3. Students will be given a test which will cover the curriculum in its entirety.

Strategies, Techniques, Best Practices Used to Explicitly Teach Skills & Strategies and Concepts

R E A D I N G O U T C O M E S W R I T I N G O U T C O M E S

7.G.6. Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, volume and surface area of two- and three dimensional objects composed of triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, cubes, and right prisms.

7.G.4. Know the formulas for the area and circumference of a circle and use them to solve problems; give an informal derivation of the relationship between the circumference and area of a circle. 7.G.5. Use facts about supplementary, complementary, vertical, and adjacent angles in a multi-step problem to write and solve simple equations for an unknown angle in a figure.

R E A D I N G O U T C O M E S W RI TI N G O U T C O M E S

Teacher: Will give a series of real world problems. Student: Will then analyze and use critical thinking skills to solve the given problems.

Teacher: Will give a series of written problems, which will require them to analyze circumference, area, and diameter of different size circles. Students: Will give a written description of the properties and their relations.

S P E A K I N G & L IS T E N I N G O U T C O M E S

7.G.3. Describe the two-dimensional figures that result from slicing three-dimensional figures, as in plane sections of right rectangular prisms and right rectangular pyramids.

SP E A K I N G & LI S T E N I N G O U T C O M E S

Teacher: Will be give out three dimensional figures made out of Styrofoam and slice them into 2D Pieces. Students: Will then describe the resulting 2D shapes to the class.

V I E W I N G & R E P E S E N T I N G V IS U A L L Y O U T C O M E S

7.G.1. Solve problems involving scale drawings of geometric figures, including computing actual lengths and areas from a scale drawing and reproducing a scale drawing at a different scale. 7.G.2. Draw (freehand, with ruler and protractor, and with technology) geometric shapes with given conditions. Focus on constructing triangles from three measures of angles or sides, noticing when the conditions determine a unique triangle, more than one triangle, or no triangle.

V IE W I N G & R E P E S E N TI N G V IS U A L L Y O U T C O M E S

Teacher: Will give Geoboards and properties of various triangles to the class. Students: Will determine which form a unique triangle, more than one triangle, or no triangle.
