- "Simply put, geometry is a branch of mathematics that studies the size, shape, and position of 2-dimensional shapes and 3-dimensional figures.... Geometry is a word derived from Greek. In Greek, "geo" means "earth" and "metria" means measure." (Russell, 2020)

- "In math (especially geometry) and science, you will often need to calculate the surface area, volume, or perimeter of a variety of shapes. Whether it's a sphere or a circle, a rectangle or a cube, a pyramid or a triangle, each shape has specific formulas that you must follow to get the correct measurements." (Russell, 2019)

- Geometry, Grades 6-8: Drill Sheets, Principles & Standards of Math Series by Mary RosenburgISBN: 9781553194729Publication Date: 2010
*** Includes exercise sheets, drill sheets, and review sheets.**

This resource meets the geometry concepts addressed by the NCTM standards and encourages the students to learn and review the concepts in unique ways. Each task sheet is organized around a central problem taken from real-life experiences of the students. The pages of this resource contain a variety in terms of levels of difficulty and content so as to provide students with a variety of differentiated learning opportunities. Included in our resource are activities on two- and three-dimensional shapes, fractions, coordinate points, and composing and decomposing shapes. The task sheets offer space for reflection, and opportunity for the appropriate use of technology. Also contained are assessment and standards rubrics, review sheets, overhead transparencies and bonus work sheets. - Geometry, Grades 6-8: Task & Drill Sheets, Principles & Standards of Math Series by Mary RosenbergISBN: 9781553195467Publication Date: 2011
*** Includes warm-up exercise sheets, timed drill sheets, and review sheets.**

Students will become experts of all things shapes through identification and measurement. Our resource introduces the mathematical concepts taken from real-life experiences, and provides warm-up and timed practice questions to strengthen procedural proficiency skills. Learn the different parts of a circle and how to calculate the radius, diameter and circumference. Calculate the area of squares, rectangles, parallelograms, triangles, circles, and trapezoids. Then, find the volume of cubes and rectangular prisms. Measure the surface area of spheres, cylinders, cubes, and rectangular prisms. Use a protractor to measure angles. Identify pairs of lines as parallel, perpendicular, skew, or intersecting. The task and drill sheets provide a leveled approach to learning, starting with grade 6 and increasing in difficulty to grade 8. - Mastering Mathematics - Geometry and MeasuresISBN: 9781471805875Publication Date: 2014Mastering Mathematics provides flexible online and print teaching and learning resources. The service focuses on strands within the curriculum to improve progression throughout Secondary Mathematics. Mastering Mathematics Student Books and Whiteboard eTextbooks are organised into progression strands in line with Mastering Mathematics Teaching and Learning Resources: - Enable students to identify appropriate remediation or extension steps they need in order to progress, through easy to follow progression charts - Clear explanations of the tools needed for the chapter followed by questions that develop fluency, reasoning and problem-solving in order to ensure transferability of skills - Show band of difficulty for each chapter and links with other areas of maths throughout the books so students know how they are doing and what they need to learn next

- "Each module contains a discussion of a component of the mathematics curriculum... answers are given at the end of the module and often screencasts giving a solution are linked." (Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute, n.d.)"The Improving Mathematics Education in Schools (TIMES) project was funded by the Australian Government. The modules cover all areas of the Australian Curriculum: Number and Algebra; Measurement and Geometry; Statistics and Probability." "AMSI is the collaborative enterprise of Australia’s mathematical sciences... The common aim we share with our partners is the radical improvement of levels of mathematical capacity and facility in the Australian community." (ASMI, n.d.)
