Angle Measure and Plane Figures

Today we started our new unit about angle measure and plane figures. The central idea of this unit is: Mathematicians understand shapes through studying attributes and taking precise measurements.

In order to provoke the students’ thinking about this unit, we visited a number of metro stations to look at the beautiful shapes, angles and patterns that decorate the spaces. We took photos of what we saw. Students will use these photos throughout the unit to study shape attributes and consider the reasons why it’s necessary to have accurate measurements.  Please see some photos from our trip below.

Your child will guide you through the entire process of a unit, from “Tuning In” to “Finding Out”; from “Sorting Out” to “Going Further” and “Taking Action”. It promises to be an interesting morning of learning. Don’t miss this opportunity!
