This Designs activity & project also includes:
- Answer Key
- Join to access all included materials
A resource that makes for excellent group work as students explore the area and perimeter of different complex designs made up of squares and circles. The commentary gives a clear definition of perimeter, but suggests that group members discuss for themselves what is meant by perimeter of the designs, a mathematical practice, making sense of the problem and persevering in solving it.
- Conducive to small-group work
- Encourages collaboration
