# Figure classification

When the students are ready, say:

Now look at page 4 and follow while I read the directions.

Pause and check that all the students are on the right page, and then read:

In each of these questions the first three figures are similar in some way. Decide how they are the same. Then choose the figure from the answer choices that goes with them. Look at the example below.  [Pause]

Example

Think about how the first three figures are similar.  [Pause] Each figure is shaded and has four sides. Now look at the answer choices. Find the one that is shaded and also has four sides. The correct answer is D. This is how you would show the answer.  [Pause and indicate the example in the Student Booklet.]

Practice 1

Practice 2

Pause while the students choose their answers. Walk around the room, checking to make sure they are marking their answers correctly. Clear up any difficulties. Then continue as follows:

The answer to practice question 1 is K, because that is the only choice that is a striped semi-circle, like the first three figures.

The answer to practice question 2 is M, because that is the only choice that has two semi-circles, one up and one down, with one striped and one dark.

Are there any questions?
