Geometry for Grades 34

Analyze characteristics and properties of two and threedimensional geometric shapes and develop mathematical arguments about geometric relationships 

Specify locations and describe spatial relationships using coordinate geometry and other representational systems 

Apply transformations and use symmetry to analyze mathematical situations 

Use visualization, spatial reasoning, and geometric modeling to solve problems 
Learning Standards
Students engage in problem solving, communicating, reasoning, connecting, and representing as they:
4.G.1 
Compare and analyze attributes and other features (e.g., number of sides, faces, corners, right angles, diagonals, and symmetry) of two and threedimensional geometric shapes. 
4.G.2 
Describe, model, draw, compare, and classify two and threedimensional shapes, e.g., circles, polygonsespecially triangles and quadrilateralscubes, spheres, and pyramids. 
4.G.3 
Recognize similar figures. 
4.G.4 
Identify angles as acute, right, or obtuse. 
4.G.5 
Describe and draw intersecting, parallel, and perpendicular lines. 
4.G.6 
Using ordered pairs of numbers and/or letters, graph, locate, identify points, and describe paths (first quadrant). 
4.G.7 
Describe and apply techniques such as reflections (flips), rotations (turns), and translations (slides) for determining if two shapes are congruent. 
4.G.8 
Identify and describe line symmetry in twodimensional shapes. 
4.G.9 
Predict and validate the results of partitioning, folding, and combining two and threedimensional shapes. 
Exploratory Concepts and Skills
 Predict and describe results of transformations (e.g., translations, rotations, and reflections) on twodimensional shapes.
 Investigate twodimensional representations of threedimensional objects.
