Giles County Board of Education Mathematics The Terra Nova Complete Battery for Mathematics is "designed to help students show what they know and can do. Many questions call for critical thinking, reasoning, and problem solving. Questions allow students to use different strategies and to take individual paths to a solution. Realworld topics engage students' interest, and the extensive use of graphics reduces the need for explanatory text and provides a supportive context. Themes group items into meaningful configurations, and items are generally sequenced to promote initial success so that students will continue with confidence to more challenging questions. 
Geometry 
The Geometry Unit includes Competencies/Objectives which focus on exploring geometric concepts from multiple perspectives. The Geometry Unit includes properties and construction of figures, proofs and theorems, history of geometry, transformations, logic, and problem solving. 
Geometric Models: Make
The learner will be able to make models of geometric figures through the application of a variety of substances (have students make shapes from paper, clay, etc. to check for understanding of concept).

Figures: Classify/Properties
The learner will be able to classify figures according to their geometric properties (use terms to describe a given shape such as square, circle, etc.).

Figures: Join/Separate
The learner will be able to investigate breaking up and putting together various shapes to make new shapes and/or tessellations.

Geometric Concepts: Understanding
The learner will be able to display comprehension of spatial relationships and geometry through the visualization and recognition of various objects (2D and 3D), by sorting different shapes, identifying symmetry, applying transformations and formulas, and through the evaluation of the characteristics of various figures.

Spatial Thinking: Apply Concepts
The learner will be able to use suitable concepts and procedures of spatial reasoning/understanding (example  have student estimate how many steps it would take to go a distance and then actually measure it.

Spatial Thinking: Visualization
The learner will be able to visualize and describe the outcome of folding geometric figures a variety of ways (example: Ask a student what would happen if I fold this paper in the middle?).

Solids: Classify/Discuss
The learner will be able to classify and discuss solid figures and their attributes (example  student will use terms to describe figures such as sphere, cube, etc.).

Shapes: Classify
The learner will be able to classify 2 dimensional geometric shapes by their similarities and differences (grouping and sorting).

Congruence/Similarity: Classification
The learner will be able to classify figures by congruence and/or similarity.

Symmetry
The learner will be able to determine if a given shape is symmetrical.
