Overview:
This podcast is based on a section of Shape UP! Fun With Triangles and Other Polygons written by David A. Adler. Students use slices of bread to make polygons, ranging from quadrilaterals to decagons. A review of the names of the polygons is included. It is designed to be viewed after the book is read to students and before they begin the handson activity.

MA2015 (4)  23. Recognize angles as geometric shapes that are formed wherever two rays share a common endpoint, and understand concepts of angle measurement. [4MD5] a. An angle is measured with reference to a circle with its center at the common endpoint of the rays by considering the fraction of the circular arc between the points where the two rays intersect the circle. An angle that turns through ^{1}/_{360} of a circle is called a "onedegree angle" and can be used to measure angles. [4MD5a] b. An angle that turns through n onedegree angles is said to have an angle measure of n degrees. [4MD5b]   MA2015 (4)  27. Classify twodimensional figures based on the presence or absence of parallel or perpendicular lines or the presence or absence of angles of a specified size. Recognize right triangles as a category, and identify right triangles. [4G2]   MA2015 (5)  25. Understand that attributes belonging to a category of twodimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. [5G3] Example: All rectangles have four right angles, and squares are rectangles, so all squares have four right angles.   MA2015 (5)  26. Classify twodimensional figures in a hierarchy based on properties. [5G4]
