### Math Photo Essay

1. 1. Geometry of Miami University
2. 2. Dear Students, You have been learning about geometry in math class! In geometry, you learn about shapes, lines, curves, 3-D and 2-D objects and much more! This photo essay is going to give you practice with geometry. Each page has a picture and each picture has three questions that go with it. You will read each question and use the picture to answer the questions. The pictures were taken at Miami University in Ohio and it is where I went to college! This book is divided into three grades: first, second and third. Please make sure you are answering the questions found with the grade you are in. I hope that you enjoy this book! Remember to have fun with it because math should be fun! Your Teacher, Miss Collins
5. 5. 1. This metal gate makes a shape that has been outlined for you in yellow. Name the shape2. How many sides does this shape have? How many corners does it have?3. Look around your classroom and try and find another one of these shapes. How is the shape you found the same and how is it different to the one in this picture?
6. 6. 1. What 3-D object is this?2. How many “faces” does this object have? What shape are the “faces?”3. If you looked at this object from the other side, would it have the same number of faces?
7. 7. 1. Look at the bike circled in yellow. Is it near or far from the bike circled in blue?2. The bikes in this picture are made of different shapes. What are some of those shapes? Where else have you seen those shapes?3. How would you find out how far away one bike is from another?
8. 8. 1. This picture has lots of different shapes in it. Draw as many different shapes as you can and write down the name of the shapes2. What do you notice is the same about the shapes you drew? Different?3. On note cards, redraw all the shapes you saw. Now do a picture sort with the pictures. This is an open sort so you get to pick the categories
9. 9. 1. The shape of a stop sign is called a octagon because it has 8 sides. How many corners does it have?2. Draw this shape on a piece of paper. With scissors, cut the shape apart and form new shapes3. Label your shapes. How do you know what shape you made?
11. 11. 1. Is this shape symmetrical?2. How could you draw a line down the shape on this sign so it is NOT symmetrical?3. Draw another shape that is symmetrical. Why is your shape symmetrical?
12. 12. Picture 11. Are picture 1 and picture 2 congruent or similar? Hint: Click and drag picture 1 onto picture 22. What does it mean if two shapes are congruent? What does it mean if two shapes are similar?3. If you wrote that the two pictures Picture 2 were congruent, then in your notebook, draw two shapes that are similar. BUT If you wrote that the two pictures were similar, then in your notebook, draw two shapes that are congruent
13. 13. 1. What shape is this?2. If you cut this sign in half from left to right, what new shapes will you make?3. Is there another way to cut this shape to get the same shapes you got in question 2? Are there other shapes you can make?
14. 14. 1. What 3-D shape is this garbage can?2. Can you think of other objects that are the same shape?3. Why are the objects that shape? In other words, what makes them that shape?
15. 15. 1. This is a picture of “monkey brains,” and comes from a tree What 2-D shape does it look like A. Square B. Circle C. Triangle2. So, look at question 1 and how you answered. Based on your answer, what 3-D object do you think the “monkey brain” is?3. If you cut the monkey brain in half, what shape do you think the “face” is?
