Explore Geometry CurriculumÂ - 6-12Â
Explore Geometry introduces 40 standards-based geometry concepts, while building language and real-life connections. The curriculum is designed to be used in conjunction with students at the standard and alternate level simultaneously as a means of differentiated instruction. Each lesson has suggestions for students with emerging skills within the Foundational Concepts area of the Pre-Teach section. The manipulatives can be used for both levels. You may find the manipulatives especially helpful with students in the Level A course of study for mastering early numeracy skills like rote counting, number identification, and basic math operations.
The"¯Explore Geometry Instructor's Guide"¯contains"¯Getting Started,"¯Topic, and"¯Challenge"¯lessons to be used in conjunction with all 10 chapters of the Student Book. Using evidence-based practices, the Instructor's Guide provides effective teaching strategies for all students. It also features content-based activities that instructors can implement to increase student understanding and foster engagement, and tips for how to use the included protractor and coordinate plane.
Student Book"¯contains 10 chapters. Each chapter starts with a Big Picture statement, which gives an overview of the theme as it relates to an image from everyday life. Next, the four topics for the chapter are displayed with the topic illustration and the Remember! text.
Each topic opens with an introductory statement from a professor, a topic-related illustration, and highlighted vocabulary that is explored within the text/dialog. After the instruction and example sections, there are two practice activities.
These activities can be completed as a group or by each student individually. Following the four topics, a Chapter Challenge section introduces a final topic that builds upon the chapter skills, or introduces a related, advanced topic. Each chapter ends with a Chapter Check-up, consisting of a brief assessment from each of the chapter topics and challenge.
To differentiate lessons for varied levels of learners, we've created an Alternate level,"¯Level A, for students who struggle to bridge concrete to abstract concepts. By lessening the complexity of the text and emphasizing the big ideas through illustrations, Level A provides a way for students with emerging skills to participate in upper-level geometry concepts.
Two"¯Consumable Student Workbooks"¯correspond to the Student Book and reduce prep time. These workbooks offer students a workspace to write and record answers that can be kept and shared over time.
Vocabulary Cards"¯are provided for all vocabulary. These cards can be used with the Time-Delay strategy and Model-Lead-Test, as well as review activities.
A"¯Time- Delay Procedure Card"¯featuring a templated script for vocabulary identification and definition comprehension is provided for you as a reference to use when teaching vocabulary terms.
An easy-to-read"¯Protractor"¯has been included to assist with finding angles. Most students will not be familiar with using a protractor, so practice will be essential.
A"¯Coordinate Plane"¯with coordinate pegs and a line indicator are also part of the Curriculum.
