Access Point #: MAFS.912.G-GMD.2.AP.4aArchived Access Point

Identify shapes created by cross sections of two-dimensional and three-dimensional figures.

Essential Understandings


  • Identify the shape of a side(s) of a three-dimensional object.
  • Match a picture of the side with a picture of the shape.
  • Dissect a two- or three-dimensional shape using a model or geometry software, and identify the new shape that is created.
General Information
Number: MAFS.912.G-GMD.2.AP.4a
Category: Access Points
Date Adopted or Revised: 07/14
Cluster: Visualize relationships between two-dimensional and three-dimensional objects. (Geometry - Additional 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.
