6MG.1.0:

Students deepen their understanding of the measurement of plane and solid shapes and use this understanding to solve problems.

 6MG.1.1 Understand the concept of a constant such as p; know the formulas for the circumference and area of a circle.

 6MG.1.2 Know common estimates of p (3.14; 22/7) and use these values to estimate and calculate the circumference and the area of circles; compare with actual measurements.

 6MG.1.3 Know and use the formulas for the volume of triangular prisms and cylinders (area of base x height); compare these formulas and explain the similarity between them and the formula for the volume of a rectangular solid.

6MG.2.0:

Students identify and describe the properties of two-dimensional figures.

 6MG.2.1 Identify angles as vertical, adjacent, complementary, or supplementary and provide descriptions of these terms.

 6MG.2.2 Use the properties of complementary and supplementary angles and the sum of the angles of a triangle to solve problems involving an unknown angle.

 6MG.2.3 Draw quadrilaterals and triangles from given information about them (e.g., a quadrilateral having equal sides but no right angles, a right isosceles triangle).
