- Understand the different forms of representation: Familiarize yourself with numerical, algebraic, geometric, and verbal representations, and practice converting between them.
- Practice translating between representations: Work on problems that involve translating a mathematical concept from one form of representation to another, such as converting a verbal description into an algebraic equation.
- Use visual aids: Utilize visual representations such as diagrams, graphs, and geometric figures to reinforce your understanding of mathematical concepts.
- Solve word problems: Practice solving word problems that require interpreting verbal representations and translating them into mathematical expressions or equations.
- Review examples: Study examples of different forms of representation in mathematics, and identify the key components and relationships within each representation.

Area and Circumference of Circles

Geometry (NCTM)

Use visualization, spatial reasoning, and geometric modeling to solve problems.

Use geometric models to represent and explain numerical and algebraic relationships.

Measurement (NCTM)

Apply appropriate techniques, tools, and formulas to determine measurements.

Select and apply techniques and tools to accurately find length, area, volume, and angle measures to appropriate levels of precision.

Develop and use formulas to determine the circumference of circles and the area of triangles, parallelograms, trapezoids, and circles and develop strategies to find the area of more-complex shapes.

Connections to the Grade 6 Focal Points (NCTM)

Measurement and Geometry: Problems that involve areas and volumes, calling on students to find areas or volumes from lengths or to find lengths from volumes or areas and lengths, are especially appropriate. These problems extend the students' work in grade 5 on area and volume and provide a context for applying new work with equations.
