Find teacher approved Area of a Square educational resource ideas and activities
Here is an unexpected resource: chapter 1 of an Algebra 1 text. You can use all or some of its contents to teach your Middle Schoolers all about algebraic expression, domain, function notation, linear equations, order of operations, input/output, ordered pairs, and variable expressions. This would be great for a substitute or newer teacher looking for reliable tools.
Help scholars recognize ways to use variables as a placeholder in an equation. Placeholders will also be recognized with regard to patterns and formulas. Learners will recognize and describe the use of variables in problem situations. They also generate their own scenarios using real-life situations for uses of variables.
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.
Gather learners into groups, giving each group a poster and a set of markers. What is area? What is perimeter? They answer these questions on their poster, using their own words and any possible examples. Then the class completes a worksheet. This lesson is organized well, and it is easy to adapt to your set of learners.
Discover the difference between area and perimeter. Learners are grouped in twos and threes and each group has one advanced/gifted learner to serve as the peer helper. They receive manipulatives to help them determine the area and perimeter of a rectangle. They are assessed based on the activities that were completed in each group and the justifications each group provided the rest of the class.
Students explore the concept of dimension and its affect on volume. In this dimension and volume lesson plan, students construct prisms out of paper. Students fill their prisms with popcorn. Students compare the volume of prisms by transferring the same amount of popcorn to various prisms.
In this algebra review worksheet, students translate word problems into algebraic equations and solve them. They find the measures of central tendency in given data. Students create frequency charts, find the surface area of prisms, identify 3-D figures, and determine the next item in a sequence. This two-page worksheet contains 20 multiple-choice problems.
