7.G.3 Students will go on a walk around school and discover what 3-Dimensional shapes are all around and then construct and discover what 2-Dimensional shapes make them up.

7.G.2 Students will attempt to construct triangles and then choose which of those triangles would be useful in engineering solutions to real world problems.

7.G.5 Students will look at images of skateboarders performing tricks and attempt to find the measure of angles that relate to the trick.

Students will reflect on reflecting and discover how math can help us describe what a mirror actually does.

In this lesson students will take a walk and discover where geometric figures are around them. Please read the lesson plan fully as there is a lot of depth and variety that this lesson can provide which is all spelled out in the lesson plan.

7.G.4 In this lesson students will use personal objects to discover where the number Pi is actually derived from.

In this lesson students use line symmetry to mathematically determine how symmetrical a celebrity’s face is and possibly to see if math can help us define beauty.

Students will use proportions and proportional reasoning to accurately calculate how tall something is without actually measuring the height of that object – since it is really tall and they can’t!

Students will discover the geometric shapes around them and learn why some shapes are what they are. Students will open their eyes to shapes they might never have stopped to think about before.

Students will learn the rules of polygons and then apply those rules to draw letters that are polygons to make a “polygonal” font.
