New York City Department of Education Performance Standards Addressed (Middle School):
M2a: Is familiar with assorted two- and three-dimensional objects (to recognize different shapes within the basic structures of architecture).
M2c: Identifies three-dimensional shapes from two-dimensional perspectives, can draw two-dimensional sketches of three-dimensional objects (to recognize different shapes within the basic structures of architecture).
M2d: Determines and understands length, area and volume (to measure length, area, and volume of classrooms and/or bedrooms, as well as floor plans/elevations of famous buildings).
M2f: Analyzes and generalizes geometric patterns, such as tessellations (to recognize tessellations in architecture, as well as learn to create their own).
M2j: Reasons proportionally with measurements to interpret maps and makes smaller and larger scale drawing (to convert the measurements from bedroom at home into a scale drawing).
M6c: Estimates numerically and spatially (to estimate the length and area of classrooms and/or bedrooms).
M6d: Measures length and area correctly (to draw a floor plan of classrooms).
M6h: Uses pencil and paper, measuring devices, and computers to achieve solutions (to draft floor plans to scale).
Common Core State Standards: Geometry (Grade 7)
Draw construct, and describe geometrical figures and describe the
relationships between them.
Solve real-life and mathematical problems involving angle measure, area,
surface area, and volume.
