Area & Perimeter: Rectangles
1 class period (60 - 90 minutes in length)
- Bright DuctTape
- Area & Perimeter Math Lab
- BEFORE class starts, tape four rectangles on your classroom floor in different duct tape colors. Measure these in both customary (inches) and metric (centimeters)
- Students should be very familiar with how to find area by now, so notes should not take long. I reinforce the importance of using a formula to help set the stage for Pre-Algebra.
- Place students in four groups and pass out the math lab packet.
- Watch the discovery begin!
