Geometry & Measurement

Featured Topic: Coordinate Geometry

Help students learn about coordinate geometry through various grid activities such as coordinate grid pictures and coordinate grid games such as Capture the Penguins pictured at right.   Younger students learn to graph in the space while older students learn to graph ordered pairs on the intersection of the two lines.


These activities support student development of spatial sense and foster familiarity with the mathematical vocabulary of geometry.


These activities help students make sense of measurement by measuring the world around them using appropriate units. The emphasis is on constructing meaning for the units as well as the instruments students use to measure length, capacity, etc.
