Today we revised what we kow about measuring PERIMETER and AREA. We used cubes to create rectangles, so that we could find the length and width. It was easy to measure the perimeter and build the whole area. Some students who were very confident, were then able to explain to others how they worked out the perimeter and the area using the formulas:
L x W= Area
Robbie=Colaboration is important because all working together we can share our ideas and improve on ideas. It builds our knowledge and helps us to solve problems.
Marcus-It was great to be able to teach other students. It makes it clearer for me and for others to understand.
Amy-I learnt that a perimeter is the outside measurement and the area is the inside surface that is measured. Using the materials and working together helped me to better understand what it means.
