In Maths we have been working on our understanding of perimeter. We used pattern blocks to explore perimeter with informal units of measurement and then used an interactive with our IWB to find out more about calculating the perimeter of rectangles and triangles.
Perimeter is the distance around the outside of a closed shape. We can measure the perimeter of a shape using many things but need to make sure that the unit of measurement stays the same.
We found out that different shapes can have the same perimeter. Watch our Animoto to see some of our work.
