Geometric Solids and Their Properties: In five interactive geometry investigations, students explore geometric solids and their properties. Within each lesson, students use visualization, spatial reasoning, and geometric modeling to solve problems.
Investigations Students, Lesson Students, Properties, Mathematics, Geometric Solids
Construct a Solid: For this lesson, students will need to work with a partner and construct one or more of the geometric solids out of coffee stirrers and twist ties, straws and pipe cleaners, toothpicks and gumdrops, or other available supplies. For example, a tetrahedron built out of straws is shown.

Fun with Pattern Block Fractions: In this 5lesson unit, students explore relationships among fractions through work with the region model. This early work with fraction relationships helps students make sense of basic fraction concepts and facilitates work with comparing and ordering fractions and working with equivalency.

Pattern Block Fractions: This lesson builds on the previous two lessons by focusing on the identification of fractional parts of a region and by recording them in standard form. Students continue to develop communication skills by working together to express their understanding of fraction relationships and to record fractions in written form.

Multiply & Conquer: Students decompose 2digit numbers, model area representations using the distributive property and partial product arrays, and align paperandpencil calculations with the arrays. The lessons provide conceptual understanding of what occurs in a 2digit multiplication problem. Partial product models serve as transitions to understanding the standard multiplication algorithm.

Running Races: A numberline model is an effective tool for helping students to understand the process of multiplication and to learn multiplication facts. In this 5lesson unit, students begin with a numberline model and extend it to investigate linear relationships with the Distance, Speed, and Time Simulation from NCTM's EExamples. Students then progress to plotting points and graphing linear functions while continually learning and reinforcing basic multiplication facts.

Geometry in the World of Art: This 6lesson unit connects geometry with art. Students explore geometric shapes and concepts using a virtual geoboard. Students use the Internet to research the Russian artist Wassily Kandinsky. They define geometric shapes and lines within his works and design their own piece of art using Kandinskyâ€™s techniques and their knowledge of geometry.

Finding Lines of Symmetry: Students identify lines of symmetry and congruent figures. They explore these concepts with paper cutting and modeling on the geoboard.
Finding Lines of Symmetry: Students identify lines of symmetry and congruent figures. Great lesson with all of the handouts/materials needed.

Math Vocabulary Bingo: This lesson provides students an opportunity to assess their understanding of mathematical vocabulary as they relate to key concepts from the five content areas. Through the use of a familiar game format, Bingo, students will identify numbers 0â€‘75 that correspond to mathematical descriptions from math vocabulary clue cards.
