Areas of Geometric Shapes with the Same Perimeter
Here you have a triangle, square, hexagon, and circle, all with a perimeter of one unit. Eighth graders must attempt to find the area of each and arrange them in order from least to greatest areas. This is a terrific task for applying four different area formulas, beginning only with the value of the perimeter.

Perimeter, Area, and Volume
After providing your learners with a pre-assessment, group learners by ability level. Groups develop and use strategies to find perimeter of regular or irregular shapes using string, paper clips, links, and other objects. They find the area using tiles or counting squares of regular and irregular shapes on a grid.

Same Base and Height, Variation 1
Four triangles are depicted for learners to construct on a geoboard. They compute and compare the areas, and so meet one of the sixth grade Common Core standards for geometry. Note that the set of triangles does not include a right triangle, so to completely fulfill requirements, more resources are needed.
