Grade 3 / Geometry Updated 11/14/97. (3.9) geometry and spatial reasoning. Students use five square tiles to form pentominoes and record each pentomino shape on inchgrid paper. http://www.tenet.edu/teks/math/clarifying/cateksgrade33.html
Extractions: Clarifying Activity Each student makes a shape on a geoboard. The teacher sorts the shapes into two groups according to a secret geometric attribute, e.g. closed shapes vs. shapes that are not closed, shapes with right angles vs. shapes with no right angles, etc. Students analyze the shapes in each group, use formal geometric vocabulary to write a summarizing statement about each group, share their statements, and discuss them. Clarifying Activity Students classify geometric solids (prisms, cones, cylinders, pyramids, spheres) according to characteristics such as numbers of faces, shapes of faces, numbers of edges, numbers of vertices.

Problem Solving With Pentominoes Math TEKS Problem solving; translations; reflections; rotations; geometry (Spatial Sense Terrapin Logo Printed Materials Packet of pentominoes Classroom Warm Up http://www.tcet.unt.edu/START/instruct/lp0005.htm
Extractions: Problem Solving with Pentominoes Overview: Students create the 12 different pentomino shapes (letters) on the computer using the Logo programming language. Students build each letter based on a 30 by 30 square. Students use super procedures to create each letter. After creating the 12 pentominoes letters, students use their letters to create new "flip" letters. Students then combine letters to create five different puzzles: two different rectangles, two different sets of stairs, and a hat shape. Grade level Time frame Subject Areas TEKS 10 days of 5 minute warm ups, then 5 days in the lab Mathematics Technology Applications Use of foundation and enrichment curricula in the creation of products; Use of GroupWare, collaborative software, and productivity tools to create products; Resolve information conflicts and validate information through research and comparison of data.

Discusses nonrepeating, nonterminating decimals. Allow students to compare their predictions and examine approximations used historically. Given calculators, students attempt to produce a more accurate estimate of the relationship. They may wish to repeat their measurements to increase accuracy. Students might repeat the activity using a different unit of measurement to illustrate that the relationship still holds. The History of PI.
