Mathematics, Standard C: Geometry Performance Standards - Grade 4


By the end of grade four, students will:

C.4.1 Describe two-and three-dimensional figures (e.g., circles, polygons, trapezoids, prisms, spheres) by

  • naming them
  • comparing, sorting, and classifying them
  • drawing and constructing physical models to specifications
  • identifying their properties (e.g., number of sides or faces, two- or three-dimensionality, equal sides, number of right angles)
  • predicting the results of combining or subdividing two-dimensional figures
  • explaining how these figures are related to objects in the environment

C.4.2 Use physical materials and motion geometry (such as slides, flips, and turns) to identify properties and relationships, including but not limited to

  • symmetry*
  • congruence*
  • similarity*

C.4.3 Identify and use relationships among figures, including but not limited to

  • location (e.g., between, adjacent to, interior of)
  • position (e.g., parallel, perpendicular)
  • intersection (of two-dimensional figures)

C.4.4 Use simple two-dimensional coordinate systems to find locations on maps and to represent points and simple figures
