Sometimes breaking apart complex shapes is something that students really struggle with! I have some students just freeze up when they have to determine how to break apart a shape to find it's area. In come these 15 wonderful mats to save the day! I have these colorful and fun mats laminated (or easily slip them in a page protector) and have my students decide how to dissect them they could find the area and perimeter if they needed to (there are no dimensions included in this set). These are fabulous for whole groups! Small groups--give a group one and decide how to break apart the shape! or as a center! These also come in handy for resource teachers and working one on one with a student to help them be successful at decomposing shapes!
