Standard 2.0 Knowledge of Geometry

Students will apply the properties of one-, two-, or three-dimensional geometric figures to describe, reason, or solve problems about shape, size, position, or motion of objects.

Topic

A. Plane Geometric Figures

Indicator

  • 1. Recognize and apply the properties/attributes of plane geometric figures
Objectives
  1. Identify and describe sides and corners
  2. Identify and describe quadrilaterals such as: squares, rectangles, rhombi
  3. Identify and describe polygons by the number of sides such as: triangles, squares, rectangles, hexagons, octagons
  4. Combine and subdivide squares, triangles, and rectangles to identify a new shape

Topic

B. Solid Geometric Figures

Indicator

  • 1. Analyze the properties of solid geometric figures
Objective
  1. Compare two- and three-dimensional shapes such as: square to a cube, square and rectangle to a rectangular prism.

Topic

C. Representation of Geometric Figures

Indicator

  • 1. Represent plane geometric figures
Objective
  1. Sketch plane figures

Topic

D. Congruence

Indicator

  • 1. Compare congruent figures
Objective
  1. Describe congruent figures as having the same size and shape

Topic

E. Transformations

Indicator

Objectives
  1. Apply visualization and spatial reasoning in activities such as: tangrams
  2. Identify and demonstrate slides, flips, and turns

Indicator

  • 2. Analyze geometric figures and pictures
Objectives
  1. Recognize that basic shapes have several lines of symmetry
  2. Demonstrate symmetry in basic shapes and pictures by drawing 2 lines of symmetry

Note: Highlighted assessment limits will be tested in the no calculator section of MSA. In the assessment limit, (0-10) or (-10 to 10) means all numbers in the problem or the answer will fall within the range of 0 to 10 (including endpoints) or -10 to 10 (including endpoints), respectively. All content standards are tested in MSA but not all objectives. Objectives that have an assessment limit are tested on MSA. Objectives without an assessment limit are not tested on MSA.
