**Math:**

*Investigation 3.2-*Students find angle sums and then form conjectures about the relationship between the

number of sides and the angle sum of any polygon.

*Investigation 3.3-*Students look at regular polygons and figure out which regular polygons will tile a plane by themselves or in combinations by usinginformation about the corner angle.

*Investigation 4.1*-Students use Polystrips to build triangles given three side lengths. They observe that the sum of two side lengths of a triangle must be greater than the third side length and for three lengths that work there is exactly one triangle that can be built.

*Investigation 4.2-*Students use Polystrips to build quadrilaterals given four side lengths. They find that to make a quadrilateral, the sum of three side lengths must be greater than the fourth side length. If a

quadrilateral can be built, they also learn that different combinations of the side lengths will produce different shaped quadrilaterals.
