Lesson: Relating Area and Perimeter
About this Lesson
Building upon the concepts of area and perimeter, this lesson dives deeper into the correlation between these two measurements. With an array of interactive tasks and voice-guided instructions, students learn how alterations in a shape’s dimensions can impact its area and perimeter.
For example, a student might be asked to explore how increasing the length of a rectangle while maintaining its width impacts the area and perimeter. They would learn that while the area increases due to the increased length, the perimeter also increases, but not proportionally. These hands-on activities emphasize the distinct but interrelated nature of area and perimeter.
