2.6 Geometry, Time, and Money

Unit Goals

  • Students reason with shapes and their attributes and partition shapes into equal shares, building a foundation for fractions. They relate halves, fourths, and skip-counting by 5 to tell time, and solve story problems involving the values of coins and dollars.

Section A Goals

  • Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.
  • Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces.

Section B Goals

  • Partition rectangles and circles into halves, thirds, and fourths and name the pieces.
  • Recognize 2 halves, 3 thirds, and 4 fourths as one whole.
  • Understand that equal pieces do not need to be the same shape.

Section C Goals

  • Tell and write time from analog and digital clocks to the nearest five minutes, using a.m. and p.m.

Section D Goals

  • Find the value of a group of bills and coins.
  • Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve one- and two-step word problems.
