Yesterday in maths, we looked at finding the area and perimeter of a shape.


By the end of the lesson, you should have recognised that shapes that have the same area, can all have different perimeters and vice versa.


Today we are going to be focusing on the same topic however the questions will be mainly based on reasoning and problem solving.


Remember when reasoning your answer to write in full sentences and explain your findings using mathematical terminology. Prove how you know something by showing your working out.


You will find the questions for today’s lesson on the document below. If asked to draw a shape or if the shape has already been drawn for you, remember you do not need to draw it to scale (the actual size of the shape does not need to be accurate). For example, if asked to draw a shape that has one length being 65cm, you do not need to draw a shape to that size.  


You can either write the answers in your exercise book or write them in the answer box provided on the word document.
