Specific Expectations 




Geometric Properties 




–
distinguish among polygons, regular polygons, and other twodimensional
shapes; 




–
distinguish among prisms, right prisms, pyramids, and other threedimensional
figures; 




–
identify and classify acute, right, obtuse, and straight angles; 




–
measure and construct angles up to 90º, using a protractor; 




–
identify triangles (i.e., acute, right, obtuse, scalene, isosceles,
equilateral), and classify them according to angle and side properties; 




–
construct triangles, using a variety of tools (e.g., protractor, compass,
dynamic geometry software), given acute or right angles and side measurements
(Sample problem: Use a protractor, ruler, and pencil to construct a scalene
triangle with a 30° angle and a side measuring 12 cm.). 




Geometric Relationships 




–
identify prisms and pyramids from their nets; 




–
construct nets of prisms and pyramids, using a variety of tools (e.g., grid
paper, isometric dot paper, Polydrons, computer application). 




Location
and Movement 




–
locate an object using the cardinal directions (i.e., north, south, east, west)
and a coordinate system (e.g., “If I walk 5 steps north and 3 steps east, I
will arrive at the apple tree.”); 




–
compare grid systems commonly used on maps (i.e., the use of numbers and
letters to identify an area; the use of a coordinate system based on the
cardinal directions to describe a specific location); 




–
identify, perform, and describe translations, using a variety of tools (e.g.,
geoboard, dot paper, computer program); 




–
create and analyse designs by translating and/or reflecting a shape, or
shapes, using a variety of tools (e.g., geoboard, grid paper, computer
program) (Sample problem: Identify translations and/or reflections that map
congruent shapes onto each other in a given design.).
