You’re Never Too Old For Story Time

We have read a few of these books about Sir Cumference. They introduce good math concepts, and have lots of math puns. This particular book was about Perimeter and Area.

Afterwards we made tables of values to compare side length and perimeter, and side length and area, for squares. We graphed the data to see if it’s linear or not, and then modelled the data with equations.

It’s fun when geometry, data analysis, graphing, and equations all come together. In grade 9 we are finding out that the strands are not so separate as they were in elementary school.
