Geometry and Spatial Sense
Geometry and Spatial Sense involve the space that surrounds us and those things contained within that space. Geometry is at the core of everything that exists. In addition to the usual investigations related to angles and shapes, we will be moving many of our investigations to the coordinate grid. The geometry concepts serve as excellent applications of our numeration concepts. For example, dilatations and similar shapes match well with ratios. Transformations on the grid match nicely with integers. We have grouped these cross-strand topics together so that students can really focus in on the skills.
In grade 7, we will be exploring this strand over two units. Click on the concepts to visit a more detailed page outlining the big ideas, learning goals, curriculum expectations, and online links.
