#### Tiling a Kitchen Floor

Cover the floor with math. Pupils work to determine the proper shape to cover a kitchen floor. They first determine the number of tiles to purchase and configure their placement to reduce the amount of waste. Teams finish by creating a...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Subdivision Design and Quadrilaterals

They say real estate is location, it might be more about area. Learners work individually and in groups to design subdivisions by dividing the land up into lots. Scholars design floor plans to fit on the lots along with including a park....

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Express an Area as an Expression by Decomposing Area (Example)

Cut the area into two. Pupils see how to use algebraic expressions to find the area of a composite figure. The video breaks the figure into two rectangles and finds the missing lengths to find the area. After multiplying the dimensions,...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Learning About Surface Area and Volume

Plan a dinner party. Using a book by Marilyn Burns as a context, pupils learn about the relationships between area and perimeter and surface area and volume. The hands-on activities have learners rearrange tables and cut up meatballs to...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Chrisâ€™ Garden Dilemma

Make the connections between area, tiling, and multiplication. A performance task and associated unit presents the concept of area and makes the connection to multiplication. Pupils work through three major sections of instruction that...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Area Builder

All that matters is the tiles. Pupils use the interactive to investigate the relationship between area and perimeter using tiles. The interactive has an explore and a game mode to accommodate different steps in learning. The game mode...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Painted Stage

Find the area as it slides. Pupils derive an equation to find the painted area of a section of a trapezoidal-shaped stage The section depends upon the sliding distance the edge of the painted section is from a vertex of the trapezoid....

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Teaching Geometry Through Play

Puzzle your way through to a new understanding of area. Scholars learn about the area of polygons through equidecomposability, the idea that polygons that can be decomposed into the same set of pieces have the same area. By using...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Area of a Hexagon

A regular hexagon is made of six congruent triangles. A video lesson shows learners how to use this information to find the area of a hexagon given the side length. Because the triangles are equilateral, they use the Pythagorean Theorem...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### R2D2 Post-Its

You can't go wrong with Star Wars! A video set to the Star Wars theme song presents a problem solving situation. The task? Determine how many small Post-It notes will fit on a bulletin board. The problem requires individuals to compare...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Area and Perimeter of Rhombuses and Kites: Lesson

Flip the triangles up and create a parallelogram. Using the idea of transformations, the video develops the area formula for rhombi and kites. The segment of an extensive geometry playlist uses the formula to find the areas of different...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Area and Perimeter of Trapezoids: Lesson

With a little averaging, a trapezoid becomes a parallelogram. The section of an extensive geometry playlist shows how to derive the formula for the area of a trapezoid by changing it into a parallelogram. Using the formula, the video...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Area and Perimeter of Similar Polygons: Lesson

Find the square of the scale factor. A component of a large playlist on geometry discusses the ratios of the perimeters and areas of two similar polygons. The resource shows examples in finding the ratios that lead to a pattern.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Proving Pick's Theorem

Pick up a resource on Pick's Theorem. Individuals watch a video explaining how to find the area of a polygon drawn on a lattice using Pick's Theorem. The film also shows a proof of the theorem using the Euler characteristic and algebra.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Poly-Gone

Investigate polygons from rectangles to triangles to octagons. Each level of the five-problem series targets a different grade level. Beginning with the level A problem, learners examine the relationship between area and perimeter by...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Patterns in Prague

Designers in Prague are not diagonally challenged. The mini-assessment provides a complex pattern made from blocks. Individuals use the pattern to find the area and perimeter of the design. To find the perimeter, they use the Pythagorean...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Expressions

Strive to think outside of the quadrilateral parallelogram. Worksheet includes two problems applying prior knowledge of area and perimeter to parallelograms and trapezoids. The focus is on finding and utilizing the proper formula and...
