# 1. Key Concepts (Topic)

## 1.1. Area: Space in a plane figure (2D), bounded by boundary

## 1.2. Relationship betwen area and dimensions,

### 1.2.1. bigger dimensions give bigger area?

### 1.2.2. Product of dimension(length and breadth) gives area

### 1.2.3. Units squares, count number of squares

### 1.2.4. Units of measurement, units squares, cm^2, m^2

## 1.3. Composite figures

### 1.3.1. Difficulties

1.3.1.1. Boundaries are not clear, dimensions not clearly shown. Need spatial visualisation

1.3.1.2. Many possible ways to find the area, partition the figures into smaller shapes, removal of a smaller shape from the bigger shape

1.3.1.3. Prior knowledge on properties of rectangles and squares needed

### 1.3.2. Want students to be able to determine the easiest, most efficient method to find the area

# 2. 21st CC Skills

## 2.1. Critical and Inventive Thinking

### 2.1.1. Sound Reasoning

### 2.1.2. Creativity, generating different possibilities to find the area

### 2.1.3. Metacognition

## 2.2. CCI

### 2.2.1. Communication of ideas, clearly, coherently

# 3. Processes

## 3.1. Reasoning, communication & connections

### 3.1.1. connections across topics, factors and multiples, multiplication and division

## 3.2. Thinking skills & heuristics

## 3.3. Applications & modelling

# 4. Content Outcomes

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

## 4.2. Finding the length of one side of a square given its area

## 4.3. Finding the area of figures made up of rectangles and squares

# 5. Skills

## 5.1. Numerical calculation

## 5.2. Spatial visualisation
