Here is Hanna's mermaid! She found the area of each of her rectangles.
Area is the measure of the space INSIDE a shape. A formula used to find the area is A = L x W.
A formula for perimeter might be: P = 2(L + w) OR P = 2L + 2W
Here is a perimeter word problem created by: Ben, Jay, Leo, and Fabian. Notice how nothing is shaded in!
Here is a poster created by the members of Table 3 to help clear up the difference between Area and Perimeter!
