Area of rectangles

March 4, 2020

We played a game in 1L today to help us practice the area of rectangles.We played in pairs. Each person took a turn to roll 2 dice, and then colour in a rectangle with the dimensions of the numbers on the dice. Each person needed to then state the area of their rectangle. There was some strategy about where to place the rectangles, to mess up the future plans of your opponent.

In the end, to determine who won, we needed to determine who had the most area coloured in. We divided up the regions into smaller rectangles and calculated those areas and added them up.
