Geometry Unit --- Polygons

Students learned about Polygons this week. We will expand later this week on Quadrilaterals (4 sided polygons). We even watched a cute song about Polygons.


Students learned that a polygon was a shape/figure that has straight sides (line segments), closed sides, 3 or more sides and is 2 dimensional (flat). Students learned about the different types of polygons:

Geometry Unit --- Points, Lines, Angles

Points, Lines and Angles
Students started our geometry unit learning about points, lines and angles. Students made foldables in class that were glued into their math journals.


 Students also learned how to name angles. An angle can be named by using a capitalized letter to represent it or 3 capitalized letters as seen below:
