Dog Gone Again!

Here is a real-life lesson plan! Learners must plan the dimensions of a rectangular fence to reign in a runaway dog. They survey what shape and size fence is needed and use formulas to find perimeter and area of the fence. They explore what happens to measurements of a two-dimensional shape when it changes in some way. Consider varying the polygons to differentiate instruction.
