No grade range
Conceptual StrandGeometry studies geometric shapes and structures and their characteristics and relationships. Understanding what a measurable attribute is and becoming familiar with the units and processes that are used in measuring attributes are the major emphasis of this standard.Guiding QuestionHow can students make and explore conjectures about geometry and reason carefully about geometric ideas while expanding their understanding of precision in measurement?
Elements within this Standard
Grade Level Expectation
Recognize, describe, and draw geometric figures.
Compose and decompose geometric shapes.
Use non-standard units in linear measurement.
Check For Understanding
Recognize and describe similarities and differences between 2-dimensional figures (geometric attributes and properties).
Recognize 2- and 3-dimensional figures from different perspectives and orientations.
Model part-whole relationships and properties of plane and solid figures by combining two or more shapes to make a larger shape or by breaking apart an object
Identify 2-dimensional shapes as faces of 3-dimensional figures.
Estimate and measure length using non-standard units (counting by using groups of tens and ones) to represent addition.
Recognize the essential role of units in measurement, and understand the difference between standard and non-standard units.
Understand and use comparative words such as long, longer, longest; short, shorter, shortest; tall, taller, tallest; high, higher, highest.
