Perimeter Investigation

Perimeter Investigation

  1. Measure and cut out 6 equally sized rectangles where the long side is double the length of the short side e.g. 10 cm x 5 cm
  2. Investigation: Arrange the rectangles to create a shape with the largest perimeter (see picture as example).
  3. How many different perimeters can the 6 rectangles make?

 

EXTENSION: 

Investigate with different number of rectangles (e.g. only use 5 rectangles, make one more, etc.) 

Can you see patterns or make predictions?
