During this lesson students explore the world of geometry on the Internet. Students create their own list of terms by navigating geometry sites. Students also reinforce what they have learned using interactive Internet sites.
Primary Learning Objective(s):
Students will locate information on Internet sites. Students will create a list of geometry terms with definitions.
Additional Learning Objective(s):
Greater than 120 Minutes
Materials and Resources:
Sir Cumference and the First Round Table by Cindy Neuschwander
Technology Resources Needed:
Computers with Internet access, printer, ABCs of Geometry worksheet (see attached)
Students will need some basic understanding of geometric terms and vocabulary. The teacher will need to copy the attached worksheet file to each of the computers the students will be using.
The teacher will check students' geometric terms for accuracy.
As an extension, the students can read Sir Cumference and the Great Knight of Angleland: A Math Adventure. Students could use MS Paint software to illustrate the terms in their geometry dictionaries.

for students with identified learning and/or behavior problems such as: reading
or math performance below grade level; test or classroom assignments/quizzes at
a failing level; failure to complete assignments independently; difficulty with
short-term memory, abstract concepts, staying on task, or following directions;
poor peer interaction or temper tantrums, and other learning or behavior problems.
