Identify the shapes of two-dimensional cross-sections of three-dimensional objects, and identify three-dimensional objects generated by rotations of two-dimensional objects.
Subject Area: Mathematics
Grade: 912
Domain-Subdomain: Geometry: Geometric Measurement & Dimension
Cluster: Level 2: Basic Application of Skills & Concepts
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.

  • Clarification :
    Students will identify the shape of a two-dimensional cross-section of
    a three-dimensional object.

    Students will identify a three-dimensional object generated by a
    rotation of a two-dimensional object

  • Stimulus Attributes :
    Items may be set in a real-world or mathematical context.

    A verbal description of a cross-section or a three-dimensional shape
    may be used.

  • Response Attributes :
    Items may require the student to draw a line that shows the location
    of a cross-section.
