    Cluster

    Reason with shapes and their attributes.

    Standard

    NC.1.G.1 Distinguish between defining and non-defining attributes and create shapes with defining attributes by:

    • Building and drawing triangles, rectangles, squares, trapezoids, hexagons, circles.

    • Building cubes, right rectangular prisms, right circular cones, spheres, and right circular cylinders.

    Materials

    Handful of sticks (e.g., craft sticks, tooth picks, coffee stirrers)

    Task

    Provide a handful of sticks to the student.  Say: “Use these sticks to make a square.”  Once the student is finished, ask: “How do you know that your shape is a square?”  Repeat with triangle, rectangle, and trapezoid. 

     

    Continuum of Understanding

    Not Yet

    Proficient

    • Builds 0-1 shape(s) accurately
    • Uses non-defining attributes when describing all shapes

    Correctly builds shapes:

    1. triangle
    2. rectangle
    3. square
    4. trapezoid

    Correctly describes shapes with defining attributes:

    1. triangle
    2. rectangle
    3. square
    4. trapezoid

    Progressing

    • Builds some of the shapes accurately, but not all
    • Uses non-defining attributes when describing one or more shapes of the shapes

    Meets Expectations

    • Builds each shape correctly
    • Uses defining attributes to describe each shape

     

    Standards for Mathematical Practice

    1.  Makes sense and perseveres in solving problems.

    2.  Reasons abstractly and quantitatively.

    3.  Constructs viable arguments and critiques the reasoning of others.

    4.  Models with mathematics.

    5.  Uses appropriate tools strategically.

    6.  Attends to precision.

    7.  Looks for and makes use of structure.

    8.  Looks for and expresses regularity in repeated reasoning.
