**IN THIS UNIT, STUDENTS WILL BE EXPECTED TO:**

- Know the properties of various regular and irregular polygons.

- Find areas of right, equilateral, isosceles, and scalene triangles, and special quadrilaterals.

- Find areas of composite figures and polygons by composing into rectangles and decomposing into triangles and other

shapes.

- Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area.

- Decipher and draw views of rectangular and triangular prisms from a variety of perspectives.

- Recognize and construct nets for rectangular and triangular prism.

- Find the surface area of rectangular and triangular prisms by using manipulatives and by constructing nets.

- Solve real-world that require determining the surface area of rectangular and triangular prisms. Measure and compute

volume with fractional edge length (like ¾ in edge or 1¼) using cubic units of measure.

- Find the volume of a right rectangular prism with fractional edge lengths by packing it with unit cubes of the appropriate

unit fraction edge lengths, and show that the volume is the same as would be found by multiplying the edge lengths of

the prism.

- Find the volumes of right rectangular prisms by substituting given values for their dimensions into the correct formulas.

- Make the connection that finding the volume given the length (l) x width (w) is the same as the base (B).

- Solve real-world problems that require determining the volume of right rectangular prism.

- Apply formulas to find surface area of mathematical and real-world rectangular and triangular prism problems.

- Compute volume with fractional edge length using cubic units of measure.
