Make Connections

Performance Task

Ways of Thinking: Make Connections

  • Take notes about classmates’ conclusions concerning what happens to the area of a parallelogram or a trapezoid when you change one or more variables.

Hint:

As your classmates present, ask questions such as:

  • What surprised you in your exploration of parallelograms?
  • What surprised you in your exploration of trapezoids?
  • How does your exploration of parallelograms compare to your exploration of trapezoids? What is the same and what is different?
