###### Lesson Type:

Continuation

Measurment

:

Techniques and Formulas

Solve problems involving area.

###### 1:

Find the area of triangles, trapezoids, and parallelograms.

###### 2:

Use previous area understandings (of rectangular figures) to gain insight into the area of new geometric shapes.

###### 3:

Determine the algebraic equations for calculating the area of a triangle (½ base * height), a trapezoid (½ height * (base1 + base2)), and a parallelogram (base * height).

###### 4:

Calculate the area of a shaded region of a figure.

6th

###### Vocabulary:

Area, Base, Height

Activities:

-Students reviewed finding the area of triangles and trapezoids

-Each student was given a different parallelogram. They cut a piece of the parallelogram off to form a rectangle. Using their knowledge of finding the area of a rectangle students created a formula for a parallelogram.

-Students practiced finding the area of parallelograms using the formula

-Students calculated the area of the shaded shapes in an abstract figure.    ### Home Exploration

###### Guiding Questions: ## Absent Students:

### Target 2

:

###### 2:

Identify the steps necessary to avoid making easy computational errors when adding decimal numbers.

###### 3:

When calculating, align the decimal points in each number, then add hundredths, tenths, ones, and tens.

###### 4:

Apply regrouping strategies wherever necessary when adding decimal numbers.

###### 5:

Add zeros to the right side of a number wherever necessary to align the decimal place-value of each number.

4th

###### Vocabulary:

Decimal point, Place Value

Activities:

-Students reviewed adding decimal numbers. They were given addition problems with decimal numbers and practiced writing the equation vertically by aligning the two decimals.

-Students understood to use regrouping strategies when necessary and adding zeros to the right side of a number to align the decimal place-value of each number    ### Home Exploration

###### Guiding Questions: ### Target 3

:

###### 1:

Explain that the decimal format of a fractional number terminates in a zero or eventually repeats.

###### 2:

Read and use standard decimal notation.

5th

###### Vocabulary:

Terminating Decimal, Repeating Decimal

Activities:

-Students learned to identify the difference between terminating and repeating decimals.

-Students sorted terminating and repeating decimals.    ### Home Exploration
