Geometric topics will include measurement of perimeter, area, and volume using two- and three-dimensional models. Students will use a circular protractor and a ruler to construct a multitude of polygons, along with accompanying artwork.

Students who delight in number surprises will have the opportunity to investigate special numbers such as primes, twin primes, composites, figurate, perfect, abundant, deficient, amicable, and other special numbers. They will also have fun with fractions through playing a fractional candy game.
