A great opportunity to hone high school area and volume skills is through dissection problems. Area dissection involves more critical thinking skills than a typical problem, especially when you make them complex. Art is a natural extension of this.
In this six-page document you will be given a worksheet of basic area dissection problems, 2 artistic areas that students will need to solve (and measure!), along with two projects that I have used in class.
-- In "Area Designs", students become acquainted with composite area problems and spark creative designs.
-- In "Area Dissection" students practice subtracting areas and indirectly solving area problems.
-- In "Area Dissection: Super Challenge", students put their deduction skills to the test with a complex area dissection problem.
-- In "Create a Flag" students create their own flag with geometric shapes
-- In "Area Dissection Art" students create a construction paper collage, attempting to cover 100 sq cm of space.
