Access Point #: MAFS.912.G-MG.1.AP.3aArchived Access Point

Apply the formula of geometric figures to solve design problems (e.g., designing an object or structure to satisfy physical restraints or minimize cost).

Essential Understandings


  • Match the parts of the formula to corresponding parts of the figure.
  • Match the correct formula to the geometric figures.
  • Substitute measurements into the formula.
  • Calculate using the formula.
  • Interpret answers in relationship to the problem.
General Information
Number: MAFS.912.G-MG.1.AP.3a
Category: Access Points
Date Adopted or Revised: 06/14
Cluster: Apply geometric concepts in modeling situations. (Geometry - Major Cluster)

Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.
