What's Happening in 4th Grade!
February 4, 2014
Geometry will be assessed during math this week. We are learning that congruent shapes are the same size and shape, while similar shapes are the same shape but different sizes. Congruent shapes can be flipped, turned, and slid and still remain congruent. There are fancy geometric names for repositioning shapes: a flip is a reflection, a slide is a translation, and a turn is a rotation. We also practiced identifying parallel and perpendicular lines.
