TitlePlane Geometry 1
Brief descriptionThis worksheet provides problems that show students 2-D geometry in an applied sense, using everyday scenarios. This is similar to Plane Geometry 2, but was designed for business and criminal justice students, so the problems have a specific focus in that direction.
PurposeContextual application; Practice problems
Topic(s)Perimeter; Area
Type of activityStudent individual work
Where work is doneEither in and out of class
Time required10 to 30 minutes
Technology neededSimple four-function calculator
Suggestions for implementationThis problem set follows a lesson of angles and basic 2-D geometry. There are three problems, using respectively: angle evaluation (how many degrees in this object set), surface area of squares/circles, and the Pythagorean Theorem to evaluate a ladder's length.
