Unit 5: Geometry- More Resources for Flipping!

In this post, I will be sharing resources from our Geometry unit which covers ratios, proportions, area, surface area, volume, and angle relationships.

As a disclaimer, this unit is not organized in a way that you would traditionally see it in a Math 7 classroom.  The class that I teach is aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) but it is an 7th grade Math Honors course that contains all of the 7th grade standards and the majority of the 8th grade standards.  My goal is to prepare them for Integrated I in their 8th grade year.  One of the 7th grade units that I did not cover this year was Ratios & Proportions, instead, I embedded it throughout the entire year and within several units.  In addition to this, the Geometry that is covered in this unit also embeds 8th grade Math, such as cylinders, cones, and spheres.

If you only teach Math 7 or Math 8, I hope you find some resources that you can use in your classroom and/or modify for your classroom.  It looks like a bizarre unit but, in my case, it totally works!

If you would like to see how I create these Flipped Classroom lessons, please view THIS video on YouTube.

Below are a list of resources that I sharing with you from our Geometry Unit.  Feel free to use, copy, and modify!

5.1 – Ratios & Proportions (Google Slide) (EdPuzzle) (Foldable)

5.2 – Scale Factor (Google Slide) (EdPuzzle) (Foldable)

5.3 – Area of Shapes (Google Slide) (EdPuzzle) (Foldable)

5.4 – Surface Area of 3D Shapes (Google Slide) (EdPuzzle) (Foldable)

5.5 – Volume of 3D Shapes (Google Slide) (EdPuzzle) (Foldable)

5.6 – Angle Relationships (Google Slide) (EdPuzzle) (Foldable)

As a reminder, I have a flipped classroom and created my notes by using Google Slides and Screencastify.  From there, I add the video to EdPuzzle and create questions to check for understanding.  If I see the students struggling, I pull them into small groups to reteach during our “Choice Time” the next day.

If you would like to access the resources from the other Units, you can find them below:

Unit 2: Expressions & Equations

Unit 3: Exponents & Roots

Unit 4: Linear Functions & Equations

  1. Out of curiosity – how long does it take you to create these lessons? Finding time is one big struggle I have heard with teachers creating a flipped classroom!

    1. Such a good question and it is one I am asked frequently. At this point, I have a lot of material built for my Math 7/8 course so not as much time as I did in the beginning.

      When I started flipping the classroom, it would take me a 2-3 hours to build each lesson because I would create the Google Slide and foldable, then record over the Google Slide, upload to EdPuzzle, and input questions. It was definitely a long process but I have received a lot of positive feedback from students and parents.
