 Area and perimeter.


Can you remember the formulas needed to calculate area and perimeter?

How do we record area?

Task 1-Please measure some places around your house and try to calculate both the area and the perimeter of these places. 

If you do not have anything to measure with, a couple of things you could try. 

  1. Guestimate -how long do you think it is
  2. Choose something like a long handled spoon from the kitchen and think about how long the handle is.  You can then measure in handle lengths and convert to cm from this.
  3. some mobile phones or tablets have a measure app, which you could use.


Task 2- Calculate some area and perimeter using the challenges in the links below
