While you play the Name Game and Rectangle Race, you'll learn how to draw, measure, and identify different kinds of angles, triangles, and quadrilaterals. And with fun activities like Bull's Eye and Pizza Party, you'll practice plotting coordinate points on a graph and measuring the area and diameter of a circle.
