Description:
In unit
6, students will continue the study of polygons, rhombuses, rectangles,
squares, triangles and quadrilaterals.
Students will classify twodimensional figures into categories based
on their properties. Students will
reason about the properties of shapes as they make sense of the hierarchy of
shapes. Students will create shapes
using a coordinate plane and ordered pairs.

Enduring Understandings:
·
Ordered
pairs are used to locate specific locations on a coordinate plane.
·
Plane
shapes have many properties that make them different from one another.
·
Polygons
can be described and classified by their sides and angles.
·
Any
subcategory of a shape must also belong to the more general category of a
shape.
·
Two
dimensional figures can be classified into categories based on their
properties.

Essential Questions:
·
How do
I use the language of math to make sense of/solve a problem?
·
What is
the best way to categorize a particular shape?
·
What
are the properties of 2 dimensional figures?
·
What is
the relationship of an ordered pair and its location on the coordinate plane?
·
How do
I construct a coordinate system, recognize the origin, recognize the x and y
axes and identify an ordered pair?
