# Geometry

## Objective

Solve problems involving area and circumference of two-dimensional figures (Part 1).

## Common Core Standards

### Core Standards

?

• 7.G.B.4 — Know the formulas for the area and circumference of a circle and use them to solve problems; give an informal derivation of the relationship between the circumference and area of a circle.

• 7.G.B.6 — Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, volume and surface area of two- and three-dimensional objects composed of triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, cubes, and right prisms.

?

• 6.G.A.1

## Criteria for Success

?

1. Know and use the formulas for area and circumference of a circle.
2. Given the circumference of a circle, determine the area of the circle.
3. Find the area and perimeter/circumference of composite shapes, including shapes composed of circles, semi-circles, quadrilaterals, and triangles.

## Tips for Teachers

?

• Lessons 10 and 11 engage students in finding area and circumference/perimeter measurements of different geometric shapes including circles, quadrilaterals, and triangles. The Problem Set Guidance includes a variety of problems that range in difficulty and time required.
• Students engage in MP.1 and MP.7 as they make sense of complex geometric figures, looking for significance of shapes and measurements within the structure of the diagram, and looking for entry points to solve the problem. Support students by asking questions about what they observe in the diagrams and what initial strategy ideas they have.
