Learning Standards

Students engage in problem solving, communicating, reasoning, connecting, and representing as they:

10.M.1 Calculate perimeter, circumference, and area of common geometric figures such as parallelograms, trapezoids, circles, and triangles.
10.M.2 Given the formula, find the lateral area, surface area, and volume of prisms, pyramids, spheres, cylinders, and cones, e.g., find the volume of a sphere with a specified surface area.
10.M.3 Relate changes in the measurement of one attribute of an object to changes in other attributes, e.g., how changing the radius or height of a cylinder affects its surface area or volume.
10.M.4 Describe the effects of approximate error in measurement and rounding on measurements and on computed values from measurements.


Exploratory Concepts and Skills
for Grades 9-10 and Single-Subject Courses

  • Explore the scientific use of different systems of measurement, e.g., centimeter-gram-second (CGS), Scientific International (SI).
