2 GEO – METRY When we learn about GEO-METRY we are learning about measuring all the things on the Earth.
3 When you were in Kindergarten and First Grade you learned about shapes in our world. There were: circles squares triangles and rectangles.
4 There were: trapezoids pentagons hexagons octagons rhombus and ovals.
5 Now we are going to look more closely at each shape Now we are going to look more closely at each shape. Each shape has SIDES and ANGLES. TRI stands for 3. So a TRIangle has 3 angles and it also has 3 sides. Each angle point has a special name. It is called the VERTEX.VERTEXA tricycle has 3 wheels! TRI = 3
7 This is a square. A square has 4 equal sides and 4 equal angles and 4 equal vertices. What makes a square special is that all the sides must be exactly the same. If they are not the same then we call it a RECTANGLE!
11 Rhombus also have 4 sides, 4 angles and 4 vertices but two of the sides are tipped over. A rhombus looks like a square or a rectangle that someone sat on. SQUISH!rhombusRhombus
12 Trapezoids also have 4 sides, 4 angles and 4 vertices Trapezoids also have 4 sides, 4 angles and 4 vertices. Two of the sides are parallel to each other. When lines are parallel it means they stay the same distance apart forever! Train tracks are parallel.
14 Did you know that they have a special name for all the shapes that have 4 sides, 4 angles and 4 vertices? They are called QUADRILATERALS! QUAD means 4. A quad runner has 4 wheels. All quadrilaterals have 4 sides and 4 angles and 4 vertices.
15 All shapes that have 4 sides, 4 angles, and 4 vertices are called QUADRILATERALS. REMEMBER: Any SHAPE with 4 SIDESand 4 ANGLES or 4 VERTICESis called a QUADRILATERAL.
16 5. A pentagon has 5 sides, 5 angles and 5 vertices. The prefix PENT means 5.Any word with the prefixPENT has somethingto do with5.The Pentagon is located in Washington, D.C.It has 5 sides and 5 angles and 5 vertices.
18 Anything with the prefix hex has The hexagon has 6 sides,6 angles and 6 vertices.The prefix HEX means 6.Anything with the prefix hex hassomething to do with6.
19 Look at each shape. Circle all vertices. Put a line through each side Look at each shape. Circle all vertices. Put a line through each side. I did the first one for you.TRI = QUAD = PENT = HEX = 6
20 But there are many other shapes But there are many other shapes. Shapes with more than 3, or 4, or 5, or even 6 sides. What about an OCTAGON? The prefix OCT means 8. So an octagon has 8 sides, 8 angles and 8 vertices. Can you circle the vertices and put a line through each side?
21 Do all octagons have to be so perfect. NO Do all octagons have to be so perfect? NO! Any shape with 8 sides, 8 angles and 8 vertices is an Octagon! Can you find each Octagon?
22 The shapes we have looked at are called 2-D or 2 dimensional The shapes we have looked at are called 2-D or 2 dimensional. That means that they are flat. If the shape is not flat than it is 3-D or 3 dimensional. This is a CUBE. A cube is not flat but it has 6 flat sides or faces. Each side has a flat square shape. A cube is not a square but you need 6 squares to make a cube!
23 This pattern is called a net This pattern is called a net. If you fold the 6 squares you can make the cube. When we look at a cube We can only see 3 faces, but if you look behind and under you will count 6 faces on a cube.
24 Just like the 2-D shapes each 3-D geometric solid has the same parts Just like the 2-D shapes each 3-D geometric solid has the same parts. They each have a flat surface called the face, they each have vertices where the points come together and they each have edges where the faces come together.
25 These are cubes. They are geometric solids. They have 6 equal faces These are cubes. They are geometric solids. They have 6 equal faces. They have 8 equal vertices. Count them. One is hiding… They have 12 equal edges. Count them. Three are hiding…
26 There are many different 3-D geometric solids There are many different 3-D geometric solids. These all have faces, edges, and vertices. Can you name some of these?
27 This is a very fancy house. Do you see the front porch? The roof to the porch isheld up with columns.Columns go up and down. They are VERTICAL.
28 In math lines that go up and down are called VERTICAL LINES In math lines that go up and down are called VERTICAL LINES. I like to think of the V in Vertical as the point of the arrow. We are going to use vertical lines to cut a rectangle into equal sections. V
29 In math any lines that go side to side are called HORIZONTAL ROWS In math any lines that go side to side are called HORIZONTAL ROWS. Horizontal is a really big word so we just say: ROWS! Rows go from one side of a shape to the other. Remember the word parallel? Rows need to be spaced equally. Rows should be parallel to each other.
30 The rectangle was partitioned We are going to use columns l and rows to partition or section off a rectangle. Let’s do one together. Split this rectangle into 2 rows and 3 columns.The rectangle was partitionedinto 6 equal sections.
32 Let’s do some more. 3 rows & 5 columns 4 rows & 3 columns rows & 6 columns____ equal sections ____ equal sections ____ equal sections
33 Partitioning a rectangle into rows and columns is not the only way to make equal sections in a rectangle. What about cutting the rectangle into equal sections using triangles?We have made 4 equalsections by slicing the rectangle from corner to corner.
34 Another way to partition a rectangle into 4 equal parts is to think of it as a rectangular clock. Make your line from 12 o’clock down to 6 o’clock and make another line from 9 o’clock to 3 o’clock.
35 Now you try some. Make your line from 12 to 6 and another line from 9 to 3.
36 Of course you can always use rows and columns to partition a rectangle into 4 equal parts. Because we made 4 equal parts we can call each part one of four or 1/4th. In this picture 1/4th of the rectangle is red. The number under the line tells us how many parts the rectangle was cut into. The top number tells us how many of those parts are red.
37 Can you partition each rectangle using rows and columns? Can you shade in 1 of the 4 equal parts andwrite 1/4 by your rectangle?Remember that the number under the line shows how many pieces you cut it into and the number on top shows how many of those parts are shaded.
38 There is one more way to partition a rectangle into 4 equal parts. It is a little tricky!First you are going to cut your rectangle in 2 parts.Anything that is cut into 2 equal parts is cut in HALF.After making your line from12 o’clock to 6 o’clock youwill draw a line from thetop corner to 6 o’clock.Now draw a line from 12 o’clock to the lower right corner.
39 Now it is your turn to practice. If you need help look at the examples.
40 These are all different ways you can cut or partition a rectangle into 4 equal parts.
41 You have probably helped cut a pizza into equal sections You have probably helped cut a pizza into equal sections. Try to cut this pizza into 4 equal slices or sections.12Think of the pizza as a clock.Draw your line from the 12down to the 6. Now draw aline from the 9 to the 3.You just divided your pizzainto 4 equal pieces!936
42 Your pizza should have looked like this Your pizza should have looked like this. Now partition this clock into 4 equal sections.
43 Now partition or divide each circle into 4 equal sections. If you shade 1 of the 4 sections you have shaded 1/4 orone fourth of the parts. Shade 1/4 of each.What would you write if you shaded 2 of the 4 parts? or ½.4
44 Maybe you don’t want to cut your pizza into 4 sections Maybe you don’t want to cut your pizza into 4 sections. Maybe you only need 3 sections. How could you use the clock to make 3 equal sections?
45 Now partition or divide each circle into 3 equal sections. If you shade 1 of the 3 sections you have shaded 1/3 orone third of the parts.Shade 1/3 of each. What would you write if you shaded 2 of the 3 parts?3
46 When you cut something into 2 equal parts we say you cut it into halves. If you shade 1 section then you shaded one half or ½ of the shape.The number under the line showshow many parts you cut it into.The number above the line showshow many of the parts are shaded.
47 When the number on the top of the line is the same as the number under the line then you shaded the whole thing.3/3 = 1 whole2/2 = 1 whole4/4 = 1 whole
48 If I cut a pizza into 3 equal pieces and I eat all 3 pieces then I ate the WHOLE thing!
49 If I cut a pizza into 4 equal pieces and I eat all 4 pieces then I ate the WHOLE thing!
50 You can cut or partition any rectangle by using rows and columns. We have only looked at halves, thirds, and fourths,but you can partition a rectangle into as many parts as you want.Instead of writing down the words rows and columnswe just write down the number of rows first with anX and then the number of columns we want to have.So 2 rows with 5 columns would be written 2 x 5and look like this.2x5
51 This is a 2 X 5. But if you flip it over it becomes a 5 X 2 This is a 2 X 5. But if you flip it over it becomes a 5 X 2. These can be written as addition sentences = 10 or = 102X55X2
52 It is your turn to write the addition sentences to go with each rectangle below. When you line up objects in rows and columns it is called a rectangular ARRAY. __+__+__+__+__+__=___ __+__+__+__=___4X66X4
53 Use an addition sentence to tell how many objects are in each rectangular ARRAY.
54 ARRAYS can be fun to make. They can also help you solve math problems ARRAYS can be fun to make. They can also help you solve math problems. Let’s try one together. Quintin has 8 chairs. He wants to arrange them in equal rows. What are some ways that he can arrange the chairs? There are 4 possible arrays to solve this problem.1 X 8 = 8or8 X 1 = 84 X 2 = or X 4 = 8
55 These are all the ways you can arrange 16 chairs These are all the ways you can arrange 16 chairs. It is easy to make little squares in your array but if you wanted to you could draw the little chairs.This is a 2 X 8 = 16 array.
56 Label and solve each picture array. Rows X Columns = Label and solve each picture array. Rows X Columns = ? ___ X ___ = ___ ____ X ____ = ____ ____ X ____ = ____
57 Label and solve each picture array Label and solve each picture array. Write the addition sentences that go with each array.2+ 28= 8
