***Annotation**

This lesson will cover the basic terms associated with Geometry. The terms point, segment, line, ray and plane will be defined and introduced as drawings. Students will look at lines and line segments and investigate the relationships between them by discussing drawings. Students will be shown angles, triangles, and quadrilaterals and asked to explain the relationship between these figures and the basic terms. Students will also be introduced to polygons and will be able to classify triangles and quadrilaterals using characteristics of each. Students will hear information through lectures, they will work in small problem solving groups and they will reinforce learning through technological application

*What are the basic
geometric terms? What is an angle? What is a triangle? What are quadrilaterals?
What is a polygon? Explain how geometric terms are related? How do we classify
triangles and quadrilaterals?*

Additional Learning Outcomes:

Students will create kinesthetic movement to model geometric terms.

***Assessed QCC:**

Grade: 6

Mathematics

18-Geometry and Spatial Sense; Measurement

Topic: Plane figure, Geometric Properties, Classify

Standard: Classifies plane figures by their properties

2-Problem solving

Topic: Vocabulary

Standard: Describes orally and in writing using appropriate mathematical vocabulary, concepts, and procedures.

12-Geometry and Spatial Sense; Measurement

Topic: Parallel, Perpendicular, and Intersecting

Standard: Use properties and characteristics of lines and line segments to determine the relationships between lines.

13-

Topic: Angle components and angle types

Standard: Identifies the component parts of an angle, its vertex, and sides or rays; and classifies angles as acute, obtuse, or straight.

**Technology Integration**

3-Basic Skills

Topic: Basic Skills

Standard; Demonstrates appropriate and effective care and use of technology tools.

4-Basic Skills

Topic: Basic skills

Standard: Operates basic technology tools and applications.

**Non-Assessed QCC:**

(Non-assessed standards are taught as part of the lesson but are not included in assessment. These include any skill which will be learned over a period of time such as reference skills or math facts.)

(If the school district has separate/additional standards, they can be listed here. Or if national standards are required as part of a grant they can be copied and pasted here.)

***Total Duration:**

Step: 1 Duration 50 minutes

*Students will be
introduced to the basic geometric terms. Notes will be taken from lecture.
Students will look at pictures on the overhead of segment and line
relationships. In small groups students will write down characteristics of the
line relationships and discuss.*

*Step: 2 Duration 50
minutes*

*Classification of
Triangles and Quadrilaterals will be discussed. After discussion students will
be required to create 3 triangles and 3 quadrilaterals from construction paper
and label characteristics of each figure.*

*Step: 3 Duration 50
minutes*

*Students will have access
to the wireless lab to use Geometer’s Sketchpad. I will give them an
overview of the toolbar that is associated with Geometer’s Sketchpad and
other uses. The rest of the period will be used as an exploration time while I
facilitate.*

2-textbooks

3-transparencies

4-construction paper

5-scissors

6-markers

*1-wireless computer lab*

**Procedures:**

*(Write the steps of the
procedure as clearly as possible and include good details.)*

**Estimated Time**:

time it will take to complete this step.)*

**Add as many steps as
needed to completely describe the lesson. (Step Two, Step Three, Step
Four…)**

***Assessment:**

Students will be assessed on vocabulary through a vocabulary quiz. Student’s knowledge of triangles and quadrilaterals will be assessed through individual presentations of construction cut outs. Students will show their understanding of Geometer’s Sketchpad by using the toolbar and other features to create given geometric figures.

Extension:

(How can this lesson be modified to work with students who already understand the concepts taught? Describe that here.)

Remediation:

(For students who do not readily grasp concepts, how can the lesson be taught differently? Describe that here)

Accommodation:

*(**How can
this lesson be taught differently for students with exceptional needs? These
students will be working on the same QCCs as the lesson. Describe that here.)*

Modification:

(How can this lesson be changed for students with IEP objectives or other alternate learning outcomes which may include QCCs off grade level?)
