3-D Geometry and 3-D Measurement

Dear Parents,

Over the next couple of weeks, your child will be working with 3-D geometry shapes and measuring mass and capacity. Students will name and compare prisms and pyramids. They will also identify attributes, such as the number of faces, edges, and vertices. Students will then study the concept of measurement involving mass (the amount of matter in an object) and capacity (the amount a container will hold). The goal of your child will be to use their knowledge of 3-D shapes, mass, and capacity to solve related problems.
