Learners find the area of a compound shape independently, then review their answers.
These resources are part of KET's Math Instructional Strategies: Geometry collection.
Independently finding solutions to mathematical problems allows learners to build skills, understanding, and confidence. As these increase, so does a learner's readiness for the next educational step, be it the GED®, postsecondary education, or solving real-world problems. Instructors may find it difficult to allow learners to be challenged and struggle with problems, though research indicates that the more time learners spend gathered around a problem, the deeper their eventual understanding and their retention of the material.
Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
