Area Maze
Rating

The Menseki Meiro (Area Maze) is a great OER for working on transferring dimensions of rectangles and composite shapes. The problems increase in difficulty as students complete each puzzle in sequence. Incorrect answers do not show solutions, so students can rework the problem or move on to the next one. Teachers will want to emphasize that the images are not drawn proportionally (to scale) and that answers will be whole numbers. All mazes can be solved without using decimals or fractions. This does NOT mean that all box sides and areas must be whole numbers.

Use this as additional practice with understanding the relationship of dimensions and area of rectangles. Students should have strong understanding of decomposing and composing side lengths and multiplication of length and width to produce a specific area.

Area and Perimeter of Rectangles with Cheezits
Conditions of Use:

Rating

This is a lesson for learning about area and perimeter of rectangles.

This corresponds to "College and Career Ready" standard (3.MD.7a) -- Find the area of a rectangle with whole-number side lengths by tiling it, and show that the area is the same as would be found by multiplying the side lengths.
(I was not able to find that standard here.)

Area and Perimeter of a square (Coordinate Geometry)
Conditions of Use:
Read the Fine Print
Rating

An interactive applet and associated web page showing how to find the area and perimeter of a square from the coordinates of its vertices. The square can be either parallel to the axes or rotated. The grid and coordinates can be turned on and off. The area and perimeter calculation can be turned off to permit class exercises and then turned back on the verify the answers. The applet can be printed as it appears on the screen to make handouts. The web page has a full description of the method for determining area and perimeter, a worked example and has links to other pages relating to coordinate geometry. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector. This resource is a component of the Math Open Reference Interactive Geometry textbook project at http://www.mathopenref.com.

An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate the area of an ellipse. The major and minor axes can be dragged and the area is continuously recalculated. The ellipse has a grid inside it so that students can estimate the area and compare the result to the calculated one. The web page has the formula for the area calculation. The web page also has links to other pages defining the various properties of an ellipse and to some ellipse constructions. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector.
