Geometry 6-8

Geometry 6-8

In middle school students will add to what they learned in elementary school for geometry. They will solve real world problems involving area, surface area and volume. In 7th grade they will draw, construct, and describe geometrical figures and describe the relationships between them. seventh graders will also learn about circles and find circumference and area of circles as they learn about the irrational number pi. In grade 8 they will understand congruence and similarity using physical models or geometry software. They will also understand and apply the pythagorean theorem. Eighth grade students will add to what they know about volume and solve problems involving volume of cylinders, cones and spheres.

Solving problems using scale drawings.

Using nets to represent 3-D figures and find surface area.

Draw geometric shapes with given conditions.

Know and use formulas of area and circumference of a circle.
