Lesson Materials

Essential QuesitonWhat are ways we can solve problems?

1. Anticipatory Set: Ask 14 students to sit next to one another in a rectangular formation (guide them in creating a 5 by 4 rectangle). Ask students to count how many students are present around the rectangular shape -- write number on the board. Then ask 6 additional students to fill in the student created rectangle in even rows and columns. Ask students to count how many students are present to fill the rectangular shape -- write the number on the board. Ask students how the activity is related to perimeter and area? What is the unit of measurement? Ask students to define perimeter and area. Discuss the importance of measuring figures and how we use measurement in out daily lives.2. Present the PowerPoint on Perimeter and Area. Distribute the Perimeter and Area PowerPoint Notes Handout that correlates with the PowerPoint. The handout contains the independent and guided practice questions that are present in the PowerPoint. For supplemental practice, use the Interactive Activities (located on the Glogster Teacher Page) to engage students to practice skills. 3. Students will be given a real-world problem activity. They will be instructed to find the perimeter and area of 12 rooms in a blueprint of a house. Read the directions as a class. Model the task by finding the perimeter and area of the kitchen. Instruct students to create a key that will enable them to identify the perimeter and the area using two different colors of each room. 4. Have students break into groups of 3 to 4 students. Provide students with 10-15 minutes to complete the computations. 5. As a class discuss each groups’ answers. Ask students to explain their mathematical computations. Talk about how perimeter and area are relevant to their lives.6. Closure/Conclusion: Each group will have a group representative that will share their answers on the Document Camera. The class can check their perimeter and area values. Ask students to define perimeter and area. Ask students to explain how they are different.7. For Homework, students will visit the Perimeter and Area Glogster Teacher Page. The interactive page enables students to access all of the materials/worksheets that we use in the classroom as well as the homework assignments. Students will be encouraged to post any questions they have regarding the topic for other students or teacher to respond and answer, Additionally, the page provides students with additional math resources.

SummaryUsing an Interactive PowerPoint, students will be able to understand visual representations for finding and measuring the perimeter and area of plane figures. Students will have the opportunity to work individually and cooperatively when completing a real-world problem solving activity. By implementing technology as well as hands-on cooperative learning, enables them to apply their understanding in different scenarios and aspects of life. Additionally, students will be encouraged to visit the Perimeter and Area Glogster Teacher Page where they can access class documents and retrieve additional math support through different sites. The students will be encouraged to ask questions on perimeter and area by posting on the comments section of the page, where the teacher and/or students would be able to help one another. nstructional Objective After conducting the lesson on perimeter and area, students will work cooperatively in groups to evaluate the perimeter and area of 12 rooms in a blueprint of a house.
