Working on Perimeter and Area

March 5, 2020

We’re working on calculating perimeter and area in our 1L math class now.

Today we modelled a rectangle on the floor, and made use of the tiles to help us determine the perimeter and area.

We know that to determine the perimeter, we add up all the sides, or we can add the length and width and then double the result, or we can double the side lengths and then add the results.

To determine the area we we are working on multiplying. We know we can count the squares, or we can multiply length by width by skip counting, or by making groups.

We followed up with another area game!
