## Unit 4- Geometry

**1/4/18-**Students set semester goals, and how they want to improve or maintain their grade and work ethic in math last semester. We then learned about the different parts of a circle. They did an activity to find the circumference without a ruler.

*No homework except to get a calculator!*

**1/5/18**- Students learned how to find the circumference of a circle. They also learned about the radius and diameter, and how to find either when given one.

**1/8/18: NO School**

**1/9/18-**Students learned about finding the area of a circle. We did a bunch of practice problems.

*They have homework practicing this tonight.*

**1/10/18-**Students refreshed their brains on how to find the area of different shapes: triangles, rectangles, squares, parallelograms, circles, and semi-circles. We practiced these and then were introduced to composite figures (shapes with more than 1 shape.)

*They have homework practicing this tonight.*

**1/11/18**- Students learned how to find the composite area of different shapes.

*They have homework practicing this tonight.*

**1/12/18-**Students worked in groups to create a composite robot out of one of their bodies traced. They turned the body, arms, and legs into rectangles, hands and feet into semicircle, and head into a circle. They then found the measurements and calculated the areas

*. Area quiz Wednesday!*

**1/16/18-**Students reviewed finding composite area, and learned about the area of the shaded region. They have an area quiz tomorrow.

*They have a homework assignment tonight to help them review.*

**1/17- 1/19-**

__SNOW DAY EXTRA CREDIT OPPORTUNITY! Due Monday!__

Complete the attached twelve problems on a sheet of paper by drawing and naming the 3D shape that is described. The

**vertices**are the

**corners**, the

*edges*are the

*side lengths*that connect the corners and the

__faces__are the

__sides__. For example a cube has 8 Vertices, 12 Edges, and 6 Faces. I hope you enjoy this assignment as you enjoy another snow day.

**WE WILL STILL HAVE OUR OPEN NOTE QUIZ ON MONDAY OVER AREA OF COMPOSITE FIGURES AND SHADED REGION**

**1/22/18**

*:*Students completed their Area Quiz. When they were finished, they finished their composite figure robots.

*They have no homework tonight.*

**1/23/18:**Students learned about vertical and horizontal cross sections of different 3D shapes. They looked at play-doh shapes to determine the cross sections.

*They have homework practicing this tonight.*

**1/24/18:**Students learned how to find the Surface area of rectangular prisms. They completed practice problems.

*They have homework practicing this tonight.*

**1/25/18:**Students learned how to find the surface area of triangular prisms.

*They have homework practicing this tonight.*

**1/26/18 & 1/29/18-**Students practiced finding the surface area of prisms

*. They have homework and a quiz tomorrow!*

**1/30/18: Surface Area Quiz**

1/31/18:Students learned how to find the volume of prisms. They practice by completing a camping activity.
