### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this task, students are asked to interpret a mapping scenario and distinguish appropriate types of measurement strategies. In order to do this effectively, they must recognize that both shapes and angles need to be broken down into familiar pieces.

This assessment works well with students who have just learned about the Pythagorean Theorem and are familiar with area and circumference of circles. I have also used it in the introductory week of a high school geometry course. Students should already be familiar with:
• Area formulas for rectangles, triangles, and circles,
• Calculating perimeter and circumference,
• Composing common shapes to create irregular shapes,
• Properties of supplementary, complementary, acute, obtuse, and vertical angles.
• Pythagoren Theorem and its applications.
This task can be completed individually or cooperatively. It also works well as either an in-class assessment or a take-home assignment. I typically give students all three pages and review the tasks and rubric with them before letting them dive in.

Included in the file download are the student task, full answer key, scoring rubric, and a cover page with essential questions, teacher notes and Common Core standards alignment.

I should have known it was one of yours! You are my number one rockstar and life saver this year... how you do it all astonishes me - I'm always two steps behind (you bring me almost up to pace - and I really can't thank you enough!)

Just moved to a new state and their state standards are radically different from what I'm used to. This is a perfect product to help students master the concept and to help me regain confidence in teaching the material! :D

This was a great activity to stretch the brains of my students. (and get away from just rote formula crunching) They (and I) enjoyed this exercise. Thank you so much!
