- 7.G.A.1Solve problems involving scale drawings of geometric figures, including computing actual lengths and areas from a scale drawing and reproducing a scale drawing at a different scale.
- 7.G.A.2Draw (freehand, with ruler and protractor, and with technology) geometric shapes with given conditions. Focus on constructing triangles from three measures of angles or sides, noticing when the conditions determine a unique triangle, more than one triangle, or no triangle.
- 7.G.A.3Describe the two-dimensional figures that result from slicing three-dimensional figures, as in plane sections of right rectangular prisms and right rectangular pyramids.

Scale Drawings

7th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Geometric Figures

Big Idea:Scales are used all around us - maps, figurines, etc - this lesson allows students to understand how to work with scale drawings and models.

Scale Factor

7th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Geometric Figures

Big Idea:Scale factor - how is it different than the scale of a map? This lesson investigates the concept of scale factor and its purpose.

Scale Drawings - Area and Perimeter

7th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Geometric Figures

Big Idea:If you can calculate area and perimeter on a map, can you find the area and perimeter of the actual place? Yes!!

7.G.A.1

Solve problems involving scale drawings of geometric figures, including computing actual lengths and areas from a scale drawing and reproducing a scale drawing at a different scale.

7.G.A.2

Draw (freehand, with ruler and protractor, and with technology) geometric shapes with given conditions. Focus on constructing triangles from three measures of angles or sides, noticing when the conditions determine a unique triangle, more than one triangle, or no triangle.

7.G.A.3

Describe the two-dimensional figures that result from slicing three-dimensional figures, as in plane sections of right rectangular prisms and right rectangular pyramids.
