Estimating Area Applied Math Practice

Estimating Area Applied Math Practice

Engage students with this estimating area practice activity, where students design their own house and furniture layout and then determine the area by counting squares and partial squares. Students will also answer critical thinking questions related to estimating, finding area, and finding perimeter. Further, this packet includes activities for practice and differentiation to meet your students' needs.This Product Includes:✓ A house layout grid without rooms and a house layout with predesigned rooms for students to estimate the area and perimeter✓ Furniture to cut out and glue into place in both color versions and black and white versions✓ Critical thinking questions related to finding area, estimating area, estimating area of partial squares, and perimeter✓ 4 houses with pre-filled furniture and rooms differentiated to meet your students' needs - varying in complexity. For example, House A is just one room with a large grid layout. House D is more complex with multiple rooms, multiple pieces of furniture, slanted furniture, and many partial pieces of squares.With This Product You'll Get:✓ Questions to accompany these houses to use as review, for small group, for whole group, for centers, for homework, for modeling, or for practice.✓ Answer keys*The goal is for students to manipulate furniture on a grid "house" to practice estimating and finding area. Take back your weekends without sacrificing quality teaching!• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •Love what you see?

Area of a Rectangle

Area of a Rectangle

This is a series of lessons on finding the area of a rectangle. It starts off very basic by finding them by counting squares. However it moves onto finding the area and then onto compound shapes to allow children to develop their knowledge. It then has a series of functional problems and also problem solving questions to make such a basic topic extremely challenging for all pupils. The are some more vague concepts to really challenge the pupils.All tasks are differentiated, 2-4 levels for each task to make it accessible to all pupils but also to stretch the more able. All tasks have full solutions to it is easy to peer and self assess during the lesson. The lesson includes reasoning and problem solving tasks which ensure that this is suitable for the 9-1 GCSE curriculum. I have used this lesson and pupils were engaged yet challenged.

A revision tool which regenerates new questions and self marks! Contains 3 tests made up from short answer questions on mixed topics, this is designed for use on pupil shared areas, and all questions are modeled on past SATs. A great alternative to use alongside practice papers, all answers will turn green when correct giving immediate feedback, hence also saves on printing/photocopying and marking. This can also be put on as many machines as you like, once downloaded put on your school network for pupils to work on-screen (no complex installation just copy to the shared area) and generate a new set of questions with one click! (Just click 'calculate now' and a new set will be generated each time.) This will also be good practice for the use of on-screen tests. Differentiated! - There is a support page, middle ability page and an extension page. On the last page are corresponding target lists which can be used for self assessment, tracking or to focus intervention. Great for revising multiple topics whilst improving fluency and mental maths skills, and also includes a times tables booster! (NB: Requires Microsoft Excel- Please read the instructions- check in settings that automatic calculations are switched off- just click formulas- calculation options- tick manual) (This is read only version to prevent pupils from saving any changes, just select yes when opening)
