Using Geometry Pro! in the classroom is easy. Tap a quiz to determine its content, and choose one that relates to an upcoming unit. Have kids individually complete the quiz as a pre-assessment and discuss the results. Did they earn a star? If so, what color star? The app doesn't accommodate multiple users, so keep a record of kids' scores. After teaching the unit, and before a formal exam, have kids complete the same quiz and compare the results.Continue reading Show less
At the Geometry Pro! homepage, kids choose from 10 multiple-choice quizzes, which they can complete in any order. Each 10-question quiz covers a different geometry topic. Quizzes are scored, and kids get feedback for incorrect answers. In most cases, however, the feedback simply gives the correct answer. Some answer choices are silly, which can be fun and engaging. When kids complete a quiz, they earn a star.
Kids can test their knowledge of geometry concepts, including angle calculations; circumference, area, and diameter of circles; the Pythagorean theorem; volume; and more. The quizzes are decent practice tools, but an instructional component is lacking, and there's no variety in the style of questions -- they're all multiple-choice. Kids could benefit from more constructive feedback and some variety in the question styles -- such as drag-and-drop or fill-in-the-blank -- that would promote higher-order thinking.
Key Standards Supported
Find the area of right triangles, other triangles, special quadrilaterals, and polygons by composing into rectangles or decomposing into triangles and other shapes; apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.
Know the formulas for the area and circumference of a circle and use them to solve problems; give an informal derivation of the relationship between the circumference and area of a circle.
Use facts about supplementary, complementary, vertical, and adjacent angles in a multi-step problem to write and solve simple equations for an unknown angle in a figure.
Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, volume and surface area of two- and three-dimensional objects composed of triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, cubes, and right prisms.
Apply the Pythagorean Theorem to determine unknown side lengths in right triangles in real-world and mathematical problems in two and three dimensions.
