Perimeter of Shapes

Students learn how to measure the perimeter of 2D shapes. by counting and later by creating and using a formula.  As learning progresses they area challenged to consider the perimeters of regular and composite shapes.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to measure the perimeter of a shape by counting.
  • Most students should be able to calculate the perimeter of a shape.
  • Some students should be able to solve problems involving the perimeter of a shape.
