Geometry

Students engage in problem solving, communicating, reasoning, connecting, and representing as they:

3.G.1 Compare and analyze attributes and other features (e.g., number of sides, corners, diagonals, and lines of symmetry) of two-dimensional geometric shapes.

3.G.2 Describe, model, draw, compare, and classify two-dimensional shapes, e.g., circles, triangles, and quadrilaterals. Identify and describe simple three-dimensional shapes, e.g., cubes, spheres, and pyramids.

3.G.3 Identify angles as right angles, less than a right angle, and greater than a right angle.

3.G.4 Identify and draw parallel lines, perpendicular lines, and other intersecting lines.

3.G.5 Using ordered pairs of whole numbers and/or letters, locate and identify points on a grid.

3.G.6 Identify and draw lines of symmetry in two-dimensional shapes.

3.G.7 Predict and explain the results of taking apart and combining two-dimensional shapes.
