The Make It Real Learning Geometry 2 workbook focuses on realworld situations that may be effectively analyzed using geometric cepts such as scale ratio, circumference of a circle, arc measure, arc length, and angles. This book suits best grades 4 (angle worksheets), grade 7, and high school.
From figuring out how to determine the difference between the populations of two countries to analyzing the number of visitors to a website, learners get to use basic geometry in meaningful ways. Each activity integrates real world information, companies, and issues (e.g. planets, Mattel's Hot Wheels, floor plans, sextant), not just "realistic" data.
The workbook includes 10 activities focused on helping learners master the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (www.corestandards.org). Each workbook activity focuses on making sense of mathematics in a realworld context. Mastering mathematics means more than memorizing procedures. Learners need to discover how to think critically and use mathematics as a tool to better understand the world.
There are multiple ways to use the activities of the book in a teaching environment. The activities are an excellent tool for stimulating mathematical discussions in a small group setting. Due to the challenging nature of each activity, group members are motivated to brainstorm problem solving strategies together. The interesting real world contexts motivate them to want to solve the problems. The activities may also be used for individual projects and classwide discussions.
As a readyresource for teachers, the workbook also includes completely workedout solutions for each activity. To make it easier for teachers to assess student work, the solutions are included on a duplicate copy of each activity.
The PDF for this book is enabled for annotation. This means that if you prefer, your student can fill it in on the computer, using the typewriter and drawing tools in Acrobat Reader version 9 or greater.
