6.G Geometry

  • Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, surface area, and volume.

    • 6.G.1 Find the area of all triangles, special quadrilaterals (including parallelograms, kites and trapezoids), and polygons whose edges meet at right angles (rectilinear figure polygons) by composing into rectangles or decomposing into triangles and other shapes; apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.

    • 6.G.2 Find the volume of a right rectangular prism with fractional edge lengths by applying the formulas V = lwh and V = Bh (B is the area of the base and h is the height) to find volumes of right rectangular prisms with fractional edge lengths in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems. (Builds on the 5th grade concept of packing unit cubes to find the volume of a rectangular prism with whole number edge lengths.)

    • 6.G.3 Draw polygons whose edges meet at right angles (rectilinear figure polygons) in the coordinate plane given coordinates for the vertices; use coordinates to find the length of a side joining points with the same first coordinate or the same second coordinate. Apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.

    • 6.G.4 Represent three-dimensional figures using nets made up of rectangles and triangles, and use the nets to find the surface area of these figures. Apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.
