Investigating perimeter and area

Our challenge was to use nine squares with side lengths of 1, 4, 7, 8, 9, 10, 14, 15 and 18cm, fit them together with no gaps or over laps to form a rectangle. We then had to find the dimensions of the rectangle.

The children exhibited excellent team work skills carrying out this investigation. It took a lot of hard thinking and calculating but eventually they did it! We’ll done everyone!
