Can your students find the area and perimeter mistake on each of these 24 task cards? Each card includes 2 student answers that your students need to "grade" and determine which answer is incorrect and explain why it is incorrect. Students love this engaging activity and it helps the teacher see student thinking in a different way.
Types of Area and Perimeter Problems include:
➙Finding the area and perimeter of rectangles with grid lines
➙Finding the area and perimeter of composite figures with grid lines
➙Identifying rectangles that meet area and perimeter requirements. (i.e. draw a rectangle with the biggest possible area and a perimeter of 20 units)
➙Tell the equations needed to solve for area and perimeter of rectangles.
➙Finding the unknown side lengths when given the total perimeter or area and use that information to solve for area or perimeter.
See if your students understand area and perimeter well enough to look for others' mistakes. After getting into the habitat of looking for mistakes, hopefully students will learn the importance of double checking their own work.
