Perimeter and Area investigation in real life context. End of unit D1 Year 6

I have tried to link perimeter and area to real life contexts. I used images from Goggle earth and the measurement tool - all the building measurements are accurate (they have been rounded). The investigation involves the children calculating using real measurements and real prices the costs of re turfing the Arsenal stadium , decking the court yard at Buckingham Palace and knocking down the Houses of Parliament to make a car park to solve the congestion probs in London. I showed the the images on Google Earth and they loved flying from one place to the other. I hope this is useful to someone

Shape & Measure Questions:Mensuration Level Ladder

Shape & Measure Questions:Mensuration Level Ladder

Mensuration Level Ladder: Good recap questions on shape and measure which are assigned to different levels to suit the ability of the students. Based on the Level Ladders from Kangaroo Maths (which I highly recommend!), this allows children to demonstrate their understanding of various aspects of mensuration from levels 3 to 7 in KS3.

Perimeter Investigation - Interactive Activity

Perimeter Investigation - Interactive Activity

An interactive, open ended shape and space investigation focusing on investigating the formula for the perimeter of a shape. To be used on the interactive whiteboard and ideal as a lesson as there is a starter and plenary. The interactive tools and activities help students to develop their own mathematical strategies and ideas. The paving slabs unit can be used as part of a transition project at KS2/3

Shape and Space Investigation - KS2/KS3

Shape and Space Investigation - KS2/KS3

This is a simple open ended shape and space investigation focussing on the formula for the perimeter of a shape. This is an ideal unit to introduce younger KS2 children to maths investigation skills as the patterns are simple to spot. The unit can be used to assess AT1 or as a KS2/3 transition project. This can be used as a lesson with a starter, main and plenary included with animations. Teachers notes are also included.
