Setting the Stage with Geometry
Measuring Perimeter, Area, Surface Area, and Volume
Welcome to Setting the Stage with Geometry, a new math program designed to help students build basic skills for measuring 2D and 3D shapes. Developed by The Actuarial Foundation with Scholastic, this program seeks to provide activities to help students become successful in the classroom and in real-world situations outside of school.
In "Geometry Works! The Stage Takes Shape," guide your students' understanding of the formulas that measure the perimeter and area of these basic two-dimensional shapes: rectangles, circles, and triangles.
In "That Should Cover It!" help your students understand formulas used to measure the surface area of these basic three-dimensional shapes: a rectangular prism, a cylinder, and a square pyramid.
"Pack It Up! What Will Fit?" builds your students understanding of formulas used to measure the volume of these basic three-dimensional shapes: a rectangular prism, a cylinder, and a square pyramid.
