Unit 4: Exploring Our World through Geometry

Overview

The study of Geometry was born in Ancient Greece, where mathematics was thought to be in everything from music to art to the governing of the universe.  Plato, an ancient philosopher and teacher, had the statement, “Let no man ignorant of geometry enter here,” placed at the entrance of his school.  This illustrates the importance of the study of shapes and logic during that era.  While working through this unit, students will build from prior knowledge to connect to real world applications using geometric shapes and solids.
