Grade 3 / Geometry Updated 11/14/97. (3.9) geometry and spatial reasoning. Students use five squaretiles to form pentominoes and record each pentomino shape on inchgrid paper. http://www.tenet.edu/teks/math/clarifying/cateksgrade33.html
Extractions: Clarifying Activity Each student makes a shape on a geoboard. The teacher sorts the shapes into two groups according to a secret geometric attribute, e.g. closed shapes vs. shapes that are not closed, shapes with right angles vs. shapes with no right angles, etc. Students analyze the shapes in each group, use formal geometric vocabulary to write a summarizing statement about each group, share their statements, and discuss them. Clarifying Activity Students classify geometric solids (prisms, cones, cylinders, pyramids, spheres) according to characteristics such as numbers of faces, shapes of faces, numbers of edges, numbers of vertices.

Discuss which lines of symmetry you have determined using the mira. b) Use a mira to construct a perpendicular bisector of a line. Graphing calculator activity: Follow the directions to complete this exercise. Press the Draw key. Scroll down to Clrdraw. Press enter twice. On the home screen, you should see Clrdraw done. Now press the WINDOW key. Set the window as follows: Xmin = Xmax = 10 (Dont worry about the next value) xscl = 1 ymin = ymax = 10 yxcl = 1 Press 2 nd quit.
Tarquin Maths Tangrams, Pentominoes And Pentacubes known as pentominoes. It provides an enormous range of two and threedimensionalpuzzling. £6.50 (+ VAT). The Tangrams Project DIME practical geometry Geoff http://www.tarquin-books.demon.co.uk/books/tarquinmathstang.html
Extractions: If you take five squares of the same size and join them edge to edge, the resulting shape is called a Pentomino. There are 12 different pentominoes and the number of patterns you can make with them is very large. This book shows some of the possibilities, poses some problems and suggests fruitful lines of investigation. Complete with sets of pentominoes in two colours to cut out and an envelope in which to keep them. Rainbow Pentominoes Sturdy and robust for classroom use, these six complete sets of pentominoes in six different colours are an ideal resource for work on pentominoes. They come packed into a strong drum. Tangrams-330 Puzzles
