Squares and Square Roots
Students find patterns relating the lengths of the sides of squares to their areas. In this squares and square roots lesson, students draw squares and find their areas. They estimate the sides of square when given the area. Students use the Pythagorean Theorem to check their work.
8th - 10th Math
Squares Inside Squares
Use the TI-92 to generate a sequence by determining the areas of squares inscribed in squares. Then write this sequence using the recursive form and the explicit form for the sequence. Learners also explore geometric patterns as they investigate the pattern determined by the areas of the square.
9th - 12th Math
Getting Started with Geometry - Scale Factor
Young scholars explore the concept of scale factors. In this scale factors lesson plan, students dilate polygons and determine the ratio of the perimeters and areas of an image and pre-image. Young scholars use Ti-Nspires to graph triangles, measure angles, and determine the ratios of images and pre-images.

Rectangle & Square Problems - Length, Width, Perimeter and Area
In this online math activity, high schoolers determine the length and width of given rectangles given their area. This excellent resource allows the students to check their answers, and to get "hints" should they run into difficulties. A terrific teaching tool!
9th - 12th Math
Finding Perimeter and Area
Geometers find the perimeter and area of rectangles. They discuss the definitions and characteristics of rectangles and squares. In groups, they use yarn to discover the perimeter of squares and rectangles. They count cubes to explore the formula for the area of a rectangle.
3rd - 5th Math
Measure Area by Counting
If each square has sides measuring two centimeters, what is the area of this shape? Learners find area in five shapes segmented into squares with given sides. Encourage them to use square units in their answers. Next, they do the opposite: given a square and its area, they are asked to determine the measurements of each small square unit within it.
3rd - 4th Math
From a Square to a Rectangle
Eighth graders solve problems involving percentage increases and decreases. Using given percentages, 8th graders transform a square into a rectangle. They apply the area formulas for squares and rectangles.Students observe the percent of change in the area of the two items.
Perimeter and Area of Rectangles and Squares
For this perimeter and area worksheet, students solve 8 problems where they calculate the area and perimeter of rectangles with the length and width given. Students calculate the perimeter and area of 2 polygons made up of rectangles and squares.
4th - 6th Math
In this Pythagorean Theorem worksheet, 10th graders solve and complete 19 various types of problems. First, they draw the square shown and divide its sections as shown. Then, students cut out the 6 parts of the square and rearrange the 4 triangles to form the square shown.
Students explore the concept of estimating square and cube roots. In this estimating square and cube roots lesson, students are given the area of a square object and must determine the sides. Students solve word problems involving driving distances and the Pythagorean theorem.
