The Geometry component of JASON’s ARGO Math is titled “Here’s Looking at Euclid” to honor the Greek scholar and the mathematics he developed. In Greek, “geometry” means “to measure earth.” Euclidean geometry is the study of plane (two-dimensional) and solid (three-dimensional) figures.
In this unit, students will explore real-world connections between perimeter, area, and volume; lines, angles, and polygons; and coordinate geometry and the Pythagorean theorem. After lessons composed of videos and activities students will have developed the math skills they need to design, build, and decorate their own innovative tiny houses. Through immersive, hands-on learning experiences, supported by Math-Mapper, a revolutionary, learner-centered math learning tool developed by researchers at North Carolina State University, students gain and apply foundational math skills. Through these activities, students grow their critical and design thinking skills, and develop their spacial-awareness and modeling skills. Get ready for your students to go BIG with their math.
Examples of Key Concepts and Vocabulary:
Area, perimeter, polygons, surface area, volume, composite linear figures, circumference, radius, volume of cylinders, cones, and spheres
