United States – Common Core State Standards

  • 2 – Grade 2
    • 2.G – Geometry
      • Mathematics

        • 2.G.1 – Recognize and draw shapes having specified attributes, such as a given number of angles or a given number of equal faces. (Sizes are compared directly or visually, not compared by measuring.) Identify triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, and cubes.

  • 6 – Grade 6
    • 6.G – Geometry
      • Mathematics

        • 6.G.4 – Represent three-dimensional figures using nets made up of rectangles and triangles, and use the nets to find the surface area of these figures. Apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.
