Content Outcomes

Finding one dimension of a rectangle given the other dimension and its area

Finding the length of one side of a square given its area

Finding the area of figures made up of rectangles and squares

Key Concepts (Topic)

Students have prior knowledge of area in P3. They are able to count the number of units square to understand the concept of area.

Composite figure of squares and rectangles (In P3, they see them individually), Irregular shapes

Key concept of area: surface area that it occupies without overlaps

How to make sense of the units of measurement of area like square centimeters, etc

Misconception: Confusion between perimeter and area (in relation to formula)

Issues: Strategies to find area/perimeter of composite figures. Not the most efficient method. Problem in visualization - unable to partition the composite figure at all
