Area and Perimeter problem to solve

Overall rating 4 out of 54.5 (28 ratings)

Last updated 19 May 2014, created 15 April 2007, viewed 63,137

Lesson plan, LSA notes, IWB lesson, Walt and Wilf. Using a real life problem find rectangles that have the same area but different perimeters. Unless the children have studied the concepts it may need to be tackled over a couple of lessons. Lots of items to move to show the answers. The fou More…r folders go together to form 1 complete lesson. I really enjoyed this work and so did the children. Hope you do to. This is the first thing I have put on here Please leave me a rating who knows it may make me brave enough to share some other items. Thanks

This is exactly what I was looking for, including the extension with the 'l-shaped' plot. Thank you very much for sharing it.
