  1. 1. Shapes in Mathematics

Essential, Unit, and Curriculum Questions <ul><li>What characteristics make the shapes different from one another? </li></ul><ul><li>How many sides does a square, triangle, circle, rectangle have? what makes a square different than a rectangle? do all of the shapes even have sides? </li></ul>
  3. 3. Summary of Shapes <ul><li>All Shapes are classified by their visible characteristics such as how many sides they have and the angles that the sides make with each other. i want them to learn how to tell what shape it is by just hearing a description of the characteristic and not just seeing a picture of them shape because then it will show that they understand why a shape is the shape it isl. </li></ul>
