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 use the attributes of plane geometric figures
Objectives
  1. Sort objects by one attribute such as: shape, color, and size
  2. Name the attributes of plane figures such as: shape, color, size
  3. Match triangles, circles, and squares
  4. Identify triangles, circles, and squares in the environment

Topic

B. Solid Geometric Figures

Indicator

  • 1. Recognize and use the attributes of solid geometric figures
Objectives
  1. Sort objects by one attribute such as: size, shape, weight, length
  2. Find solid figures in the environment

Topic

E. Transformations

Indicator

Objectives
  1. Tell position by using words such as: over, under, above, on, next to, below, beside, behind
  2. Recognize a slide using concrete materials

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.
