Driving Question: What is the difference between perimeter, area and volume?
Learning Target: To be able to solve puzzles involving perimeter, area and volume.
Success Criteria 
Beginning
To be able to find the perimeter and area of simple shapes.
Developing
To be able to find the perimeter and area of compound shapes.
Mastering 
To be able to find the volume of prisms and compound prisms.

Resources 

Beginning 

We start by looking to calculate the areas of rectangles and then triangles. 

B1
Test your understanding of finding the area of rectangles. 

B2

B3
Learn and assess your understand of finding the area of triangles. 

B4
For each of these triangles you need to calculate the area. In some cases it is not possible to work out the area and therefore you must explain why.



We now look to calculate the areas of parallelograms and then trapeziums. 

B5
Test your understand of find the area of parallelograms.

B6


Developing 

We now look to calculate the areas of compound shapes. 

D1
Learn and assess your understand of finding the area of compound shapes.
