Unit 4 Practice Name:


In this unit you learned to: Lesson

find the area of triangles, quadrilaterals, and other polygons. 23

solve problems with polygons in the coordinate plane. 24

use nets to find the surface area of three-dimensional figures. 25

find the volume of a rectangular prism with fractional edge lengths, for example:
the volume of a cube with edges ​ 1 ​inch is ​ 1 ​  cubic inch.

Use a coordinate grid to draw the race route. Label the

vertices of the polygon that you draw with coordinate
pairs. Show and explain why your route meets all of the
rules. Then write a description of the route using
directional words and street names.

Reflect on Mathematical Practices

After you complete the task, choose one of the following
questions to answer.
1 Use Structure  How did you use place value
understanding to determine the length of the
race route?

2 Persevere  What was your plan for finding a possible

race route?
