Area and Perimeter - Rectangles / compound Shapes

Differentiated lesson going from basic concepts to problem solving and SAT questions. (groups on the whiteboard file refer to the ability tables I have in my class - more sides = higher ability) I have this on the board whilst they work so they can progress from whatever starting point they come in at ('Teacher's Toolkit': upwardly mobile)
