Measurement and geometry standards span all grade levels. Because of this repeated exposure, you would think that the students would grasp the concepts easily. However, that just isn’t so. Identifying various polygons and solid shapes, breaking them down into their basic lines and angles, discovering the perimeter and area of a shape is sometimes tricky for the students. Especially when most of the time the work the students are doing is from a text book.
