brochure to teach the classification of angles
and triangles. The brochure itself must be in the shape of an
the problems on practice workbook pages: PW 17.1, 17.2, 17.3, and
18.2. Do even problems on page 368 (2 through 18). Complete
||3. Create a
neat, well drawn poster showing how angles and line segments can "add
together" to create polygons, triangles, and quadrilaterals.
Select eight shapes

Problem Solving link on page 369 of your text book. After you have solved this,
create a different but similar one for others to do.
|5. Use brass
fasteners, buttons, beads, and other supplies provided to you to create
10 items on this
list and 10 on this list.
||6. Create flash cards with
names, and pictures of the shapes, angles, and lines found at these
Create a geometry t-shirt incorporating angles, lines, rays, shapes,
polygons, & 3-dimensional shapes. It must exhibit
symmetry. Your work must be very creative, very neat, & error
free. Extremely high quality is required.
Follow directions on the worksheet here,
Create a set of 4 ordered pairs on a 4 quadrant grid. Here is an example.
points are connected, they should create a quadrilateral.
|9. Write a composition defining a square in terms of a rhombus. The define a square in terms of a rectangle. Use color, and create interesting illustrations.||10. Build a bridge using
toothpicks. Your bridge must have right angles, acute angles,
straight angles, and obtuse angles. In addition, it must have
symmetry in two directions. Dimensions will be given in class.
pretzel sticks to form 3 triangles and 3 quadrilaterals. Create a
table showing the shape formed, the number of sides, the types of
angles in each.
||12. Draw a
flowchart that can be used to classify a quadrilateral. The
flowchart should include comparisons of lengths of sides, number of
pairs of parallel sides, and the types of angles. Here is a link
to get you started. Examples: 1
|13. Create a
file folder game to teach concepts two-and three-dimensional figures
& their shadows. Your writing must be very clear, and
neat. Make at least 25 game cards, make the game pieces and write
||14. Create a
card game similar to "Go Fish." In place of fish species, select
geometric shapes including a circle, a quadrilateral (of your choice),
a triangle, and two other figures. Write the rules, and be
prepared to play!!
||15. Use geoboards and dot paper to create the shapes on pages 380 & 384. Make drawings of the shapes Identify problem numbers you are solving. Calculate the perimeter and area of each shape you create.||16. Create 15
pattern activities for your classmates to solve. Each pattern
must have geometric shapes, lines, angles, or circles. Your
"worksheets" should be high quality, and suitable for copying.
|Play bingo! Each activity
different, but of equal value.
Select four activities (at least two must be congruent.)
For extra credit, all four activities must be in a row.
Activities marked with a black triangle must be done at home.
Activities that must be done at school are typed in RED.
If students do not finish "school" activities in the alotted time, they must be completed at home.
Each student will have one required activity. (Click on the link to discover.)
