Alongside our new perimeter resources we have also launched our new 3rd grade area resources. Students progress from finding the area by tiling a shape with square metres or yards to calculating the area by multiplying the length and width.
Your students will develop a conceptual understanding of the multiplicative relationship between the number of square units in a row and the number of rows. They will also use what they’ve learned to create on or more rectangular pens with a given area or side length.
The new areas resources include:
- Area Multiplication – Understand that the area of a rectangle can be calculated by multiplying the width times the height.
- Perfect Pens! – Practice creating rectangles with a given area, length or width.
