Types of Questions Perimeter and area Elapsed time Appropriate units of measure Estimation and calculation Using a calendar Comparison
Perimeter What is perimeter? What do you need to know to calculate perimeter? What is the perimeter of the following shape:
Perimeter (Cont.) Which of the following has the same perimeter as the shape on the previous slide:
Perimeter (Cont.) If the perimeter of the shape is 25 ft., what is the length of the right side?
Area What is area? What do you need to know to calculate area? You may get an easy question like this: What is the area in units?
Area (Cont.) This is what you are most likely to see: Calculate the area.

Elapsed Time Basketball practice begins at 3:30pm. Practice lasts 1 hour and 30 minutes. What time does practice end? The movie was over at 9:30pm. The movie was 2 hours and 30 minutes long. When did the movie start?
Elapsed Time (Cont.) How much time is there between the end of Finding Nemo and the beginning of The Little Mermaid?
Strategies for Elapsed Time Use a clock in the room. Draw a timeline. Add and subtract time, but remember to regroup using 60 minutes in an hour.
Using Area and Elapsed Time Some questions will give you a surface area that is a fraction of a bigger area. They will give you a time that it will take for the original surface area and ask you to calculate or estimate the time to finish the remaining area.
