1 Area & Perimeter By, Jennifer Sagendorf ITRT – Suffolk Public Schools

2 Perimeter of a Rectangle To calculate the perimeter of an object or space, you will need to add the length and width, then multiply by 2. ( ) x 2 = ______ It means the same as: (2 + 4) + (2 + 4) = ________ 2 4

3 Try to find the perimeter of these rectangles

4 Perimeter of a Square To find the perimeter of a square, multiply the side by 4. 3 x 4 = ___ 3

5 Find the perimeter of these squares

6 Perimeter of a Triangle To calculate the perimeter of a triangle you will need to add the sides = ______ 3 4 5

7 Find the perimeter of these triangles

8 Tricky Perimeters (Look carefully.) You will need to remember which sides to add and the values for each side

9 Area of a Rectangle The area of a rectangle is determined by multiplying length x width. 2 x 4 = ______ 2 4

10 Area of a Square or Rectangle 2 x 4 = 8 2 4

11 Find the area of these rectangles

12 Area of a Square You find the area of a square by multiplying the side by itself. 3

13 Find the area of these squares

14 Area of a Triangle Finding the area of a triangle is different. Area of a triangle = ½ (base x height) ***(Base x height) is the same as (length x width).*** 3 4

15 Area of a Triangle Sometimes it makes it easier to remember if you can imagine it like this: 3 4 A triangle is half of a rectangle or square. This is because the base (4) x the height (3) would be the same as the length x the width of a rectangle.

16 Find the area of these triangles

17 Try to find the area and perimeter on these game websites. Funbrain Area & Perimeter Funbrain Area & Perimeter Funbrain Area & Perimeter Funbrain Area & Perimeter Fence Me In! Fence Me In!
