4
Framing The Session Open up a new SmartBoard notebook page. Go to the Gallery and search for a grid. Open up related folders, and select the Graphing folder. Open up Pictures and Backgrounds, and select Grid-large. Have students trace their hand on the screen, and count the grid squares inside the tracing.

5
Teaching Step 1- Discuss the results. Step 2- Participants shall find the area of their hand considering two scenarios: if the grid is a 1 inch grid, and if the grid is a ½ inch grid. Be sure students understand why the estimate with ½ inch grid paper requires that the estimate be multiplied by ¼ to get the area in square inches.

6
Guided Practice Guide participants through the process of discussion. Discuss which grid was easier to use to estimate the area of their hand and why.

Work Time

8
Getting Started Take the next 25 minutes to complete the following: Complete IMPACT Mathematics Course 1 Investigation 1 pages 410-412_3 rd ed.,2009 Develop & Understand A, B, and C. Use Geometers Sketchpad Parallelogram Area activity. To explore the area of triangles, students should complete IMPACT Mathematics Course 1 Investigation 2 pages 413-416_3 rd ed.,2009 Develop & Understand A, B, and C. Use Geometers Sketchpad Area activity and choose the Triangle page tab.

9
Getting Started To explore the area of circles students should complete IMPACT Mathematics Investigation 4 pages 419-421_3 rd ed.,2009 Develop & Understand A, and B. Use a New Geometers Sketchpad page to create circles for Develop & Understand A. On the new sketch, go to the Graph menu/ Grid Form and select Square Grid to draw the circles on a grid. The Course 1 IMPACT Mathematics Lab Investigation on pages 525-527_2 nd ed.,2004 provides the opportunity to show how to use Microsoft Excel. This is not available in the revised text.
