Small groups of learners find the areas of compound figures by first decomposing them into rectangles.
These resources are part of KET's Math Instructional Strategies: Geometry collection.
Guided practice, either in small groups or individually, can increase concept understanding and retention. When the time comes for independent practice, either in a testing, real-life, or homework situation, learners can feel more confident and better prepared to solve problems when they have experienced good guided practice. The instructor's role during guided practice is to allow learners to be challenged and even to struggle, providing guidance only when learners veer into misconception.
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.
