#### Strings and Areas

You'd be surprised what you can do with a string! The constraint is the length of string, and the task is to maximize area. Given a series of composite shapes, learners must create a formula for the maximum area for a specified...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Area of an L-Shape

Think about your shapes as tangrams as you find their areas! Scholars learn to decompose L-shaped compound figures to find their areas. A video shows how to break the figure into rectangles, and learners practice using the included...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Area of Compound Shapes

Composite figures—because everything isn't shaped like a rectangle, triangle, or circle. Learners practice separating compound shapes into something more manageable. A video shows them how to make the calculations, and worksheets give...

#### Toilet Paper Roll

You won't want to flush a great lesson down the drain! An intriguing resource asks learners to predict the number of sheets of toilet paper on a roll. Presented with the dimensions of the roll and one sheet of paper, scholars make...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Coffee Traveler

Investigate the volume of irregular figures in an inquiry-based exercise. Presented with an irregularly shaped box filled with water, learners must predict the level of water when it is tipped on its side. The class can divide the figure...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Composite Solids: Lesson

Combine the formulas to arrive at one volume. Using the formulas for different solids, the video introduces finding the volume of composite solids. The portion of an extensive playlist on geometry works a couple of problems, one with an...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Area of Composite Shapes: Lesson

To find the whole, add and subtract the pieces. A portion of a massive geometry playlist shows how to approach finding the area of a composite figure. The resource works with a couple different composite shapes to find their areas.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Area and Perimeter

Develop a strategy for finding the area and perimeter of irregular figures. Building on an understanding of finding area and perimeter of rectangles and triangles, learners apply the same concepts to composite figures. After practicing...
