Functional Mathematics: Build a Farm
LO:  Think  about perimeter and area in context.
Overview: This project gets students to think about using constraints from written information to create a farm yard space. The farm also brings in the ideas of money calculation, areas and perimeters.
Suggested approach: Use the introduction PowerPoint to engage the students with the task. Once all questions have been answered each student can then be given a copy of the constraints sheet and a copy of the double-sided values sheet. Student will also need and piece of A4 centimetre squared paper and an A3 piece of paper.
