different polygons including squares, rectangles and hexagons.  We then learnt how to calculate the perimeter by measuring all the straight sides

and finding the total distance around the outside of each polygon. After that, we investigated the difference between area and perimeter.

We calculated the area of squares, rectangles, triangles and compound

shapes by counting squares. Soon we learnt to use a formula: Area of a rectangle = Length x Breath

Area of a triangle = 1/2 (Length x Breath) Next, we explored volume by making polyhedrons from cubes including different letters We also learnt the formula for the volume of a square or rectangle =

Length x Breath x Height and investigated patterns. Finally, we explored the link between volume and capacity by estimating and measuring liquids.   No comments have been left yet. SIAMs 2016
