Polygons: Introduction & Investigation

Unit 11: Geometry in Architecture
Lesson 1 of 9

Objective: SWBAT compare attributes of regular and irregular pentagons, hexagon, heptagons and octagons. They will construct viable arguments about what is/isn't a polygon and critique the reasons of other students who are doing the same.

Big Idea: Interacting with polygons and testing the definitions can be engaging, fun and build a powerful, individualized understanding. (Lesson updated: January 6, 2015)
