This quiz incorporates real world problem solving in which students must apply the skills of finding area and perimeter of polygons. It could also be used as a culminating geometry unit test. Includes extra credit question about circles. Students must be able to find areas of composite figures as well.
Skills required: area of rectangles, squares, circles, parallelograms, triangles, and trapezoids; perimeter of parallelograms; circumference of circles; multiplying mixed numbers to find area of rectangles; knowledge of quadrilateral hierarchy
I personally used this with a 5th grade accelerated math class (they are using a 6th grade math curriculum), but it can be easily adapted for higher levels. Note: students who forgot the formulas for parallelograms and trapezoids were still able to answer the questions by breaking shapes into triangles and rectangles. So if you exclude the circles, you may be able to adjust this quiz for lower levels too!
No answer key is included. It is my belief that teachers should always take an assessment before giving it to students, and thus should be able to answer the questions themselves in case the students have questions about the quiz.
FYI: the extra credit question is actually from an SAT prep book.
