FREE Geometry Solving Area Challenge Problem: Swiss Cheese

When I taught geometry, I had one student who had a medical condition that made it very difficult for him to see the small diagrams in textbooks and other worksheets. This student also happened to be brilliant; he would listen the whole period, walk up to the whiteboard at random times during the class, scan his eyes across the board a few inches from it, and go back to his seat. He received some of the highest marks I have ever given! He definitely needed a challenge.

I created several challenging area problems so that students like this boy could have fun solving harder problems. I also created them large, 1 to a page, to give students room to solve the problem with tons of space to write and big enough to see for students with visual impairment. I created this Swiss Cheese Problem and I am providing it for free as a sample of my math resources!

You could give these problem pages to early-finishers as extra challenges. You could also use them as stations around the room and have students move in between problems!
