Third graders use rectangle area cards to demonstrate their understanding of area and unit squares. After tracing shapes onto plain paper, class members use tiles or base 10 cubes to measure the area within the shape. Learners also show they understand that a square unit can be different sizes by using different size squares. Templates and scoring sheets are included.
Eighth graders investigate the concept of the application of finding the area of different plane shapes. Using different measurements comparisons and contrasts are made to illustrate the concept. The students use the correct formulas to correspond with the figure being used.
