Instructional Ideas
  • Allow learners to watch the video independently and then apply the strategy to practice problems
  • Include area problems when practicing to allow pupils to decide which formula to use
Classroom Considerations
  • Video continues from the previous lessons in the series
Pros
  • Requires different algebraic approaches when using the formulas
  • Examples chosen require scholars to interpret complex diagrams 
Cons
  • Does not incorporate context within the problem situations
