Area and Perimeter
We have been studying area and perimeter in math. The perimeter is the distance around a shape. The area is the amount of space inside a figure and is written in square units. If you purchase sod, tile, fabric, carpet, or paint, you need to know how to compute area.
We used Cheez-Its to compute the area of rectangles. Each Cheez-It is an inch square. We briefly discussed that length times width equals area. Afterward, we ate our math lesson!
How many squares cover each rectangle? We noticed how the squares look like the arrays we constructed in the multiplication unit.
