Topic 16: Lines, Angles and Shapes

Topic 16 focuses on understanding how shapes can be analyzed, described, and classified, with attention to properties of sides, angles, and lines of symmetry.


  • Identify Relationships Between Lines: Students learn different ways two lines can be related.

Classify Plane Shapes

  • Classify Triangles: Students learn that triangles can be classified based on the length of their sides, the measure of their angles, or both.
  • Classify Quadrilaterals: Students classify quadrilaterals based on properties of their sides and angles.

Lines of Symmetry

  • Recognize Line Symmetry: Students recognize and draw lines of symmetry and identify line-symmetric figures.
  • Draw Figures with Line Symmetry: Students draw figures that have line symmetry.

Extend Geometric Reasoning

  • Critique Reasoning: Students critique the reasoning of others about geometric and other mathematical situations.
