Title | Plane Geometry 1 |

Brief description | This 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. |

Purpose | Contextual application; Practice problems |

Topic(s) | Perimeter; Area |

Type of activity | Student individual work |

Where work is done | Either in and out of class |

Time required | 10 to 30 minutes |

Technology needed | Simple four-function calculator |

Suggestions for implementation | This 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. |
