In Fifth Grade
Fifth grade students represented and solved problems involving perimeter, area, and volume as well as calculated conversions with the customary or metric system. Students also determined the volume of a rectangular prism, recognized the volume of one cubic unit, and classified two-dimensional figures in a hierarchy of sets and subsets using graphic organizers based on their attributes and properties.
In Sixth Grade
Sixth grade students will convert units within a measurement system using proportions and unit rates. Students will extend their knowledge about triangles to find the sum and measures of angles and the lengths of sides to form a triangle. Students will model and solve area formulas for parallelograms, trapezoids, and triangles as well as write equations. Graphing using the four quadrants of a coordinate plane is also introduced.
In Seventh Grade
In seventh grade, students will solve real-world problems related to similar shape and scale drawings, convert between measurement systems using proportions and unit rates as well as write and solve equations related to the sum of angles in a triangle. Students will also solve problems related to finding the volume and lateral and total surface area of rectangular prisms, triangular prisms, rectangular pyramids, and triangular pyramids as well as determine the circumference and areas of circles and area of composite figures that contain various combinations of figures.
