MAFS.4.G.1.1

Draw points, lines, line segments, rays, angles (right, acute, obtuse), and perpendicular and parallel lines. Identify these in two-dimensional figures.
General Information
Subject Area: Mathematics
Grade: 4
Domain-Subdomain: Geometry
Cluster: Level 1: Recall
Cluster: Draw and identify lines and angles, and classify shapes by properties of their lines and angles. (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.

Test Item Specifications

  • Assessment Limits :
    s Items may not require students to name a given figure. Items may not require knowledge or use of ordered pairs or a defined coordinate grid system. Items may require students to draw a figure based on multiple attributes (e.g., an acute triangle), with the exception of right triangles. Items that include trapezoids must consider both the inclusive and exclusive definitions. Items may not use the term "kite" but may include the figure.

Lesson Plans

Coding Geometry Challenges #1-7, 14 & 15:

This set of geometry challenges focuses on creating a variety of polygons as students problem solve and think as they learn to code using block coding software.  Student will need to use their knowledge of the attributes of polygons and mathematical principals of geometry to accomplish the given challenges. The challenges start out fairly simple and move to more complex situations in which students can explore at their own pace or work as a team. Computer Science standards are seamlessly intertwined with the math standards while providing “Step it up!” and “Jump it up!” opportunities to increase rigor.

Teaching Ideas

Angle Hunting:

In this activity, learners use a hand-made protractor to measure angles they find in playground equipment. Learners will observe that angle measurements do not change with distance, because they are distance invariant, or constant. Note: The "Pocket Protractor" activity should be done ahead as a separate activity (see related resource), but a standard protractor can be used as a substitute.
