Module 7
Geometry and Measurement
Word Problems

Overview

Throughout this module, students will:
• use all four operations to solve one and two-step word problems
• make sense of problems and persevere in solving them
• share strategies for problem solving and critique peer strategies
• explore attributes of quadrilaterals and classify examples
• use tangrams and tetrominoes to compose and decompose shapes
• reason about relationships between shapes and attributes
• tessellate to bridge geometry and perimeter
• apply real world situations as they learn about perimeter as an attribute of plane figure
• measure perimeter
• utilize line plots to draw conclusions about perimeter and area measurements
• solve problems involving perimeter and area
Vocabulary
 Terminology Definition Illustration Attribute any characteristic of a shape, including properties and other defining characteristics (e.g. straight sides, and non-defining characteristics (blue)) Diagonal a line that goes through vertices of a polygon that are not next to each other Perimeter boundary or length of the boundary of a two-dimensional shape Property description and/or characteristics of shapes (ie: having all sides equal in length) Regular polygon polygon whose side lengths and interior angles are all equal Tessellate to tile a plane without gaps or overlaps Tetrominoes four squares arranged to form a shape so that every square shares at least one side with another square
