Grade 6 Geometry


Solve
realworld and mathematical problems involving area, surface area, and
volume.

RESOURCES


Find
the area of right triangles, other triangles, special quadrilaterals, and
polygons by composing into rectangles or decomposing into triangles and other
shapes; apply these techniques in the context of solving realworld and
mathematical problems.


Find
the volume of a right rectangular prism with fractional edge lengths by
packing it with unit cubes of the appropriate unit fraction edge lengths, and
show that the volume is the same as would be found by multiplying the edge
lengths of the prism. Apply the formulas V = l w h and V
= b h to find volumes of right rectangular prisms with fractional
edge lengths in the context of solving realworld and mathematical problems.


Draw
polygons in the coordinate plane given coordinates for the vertices; use
coordinates to find the length of a side joining points with the same first
coordinate or the same second coordinate. Apply these techniques in the
context of solving realworld and mathematical problems.


Represent
threedimensional figures using nets made up of rectangles and triangles, and
use the nets to find the surface area of these figures. Apply these
techniques in the context of solving realworld and mathematical problems.
