High Point Third Grade Math Students are Designers!
Mon, February 2, 2015
Third grade math students in Mrs. Miller’s and Mrs. Ratliff’s math classes are studying geometry. They have used a variety of activities to learn about various solid (3d shapes like cone, sphere, rectangular prism, cube, cylinder, and square pyramid) and plane figures (flat shape like square, rectangle, circle, etc.).
They even learned that a square is also considered to be a rectangle! Students used mini marshmallows and toothpicks to construct their own solid figure! Afterwards, they discussed with partners how many vertices (points represented by the marshmallows), faces (the flat, or plane spaces on a solid figure), and edges (where two or more faces meet represented by toothpicks) were on each solid figure!
