PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In this project, students will use the math computation and historical context of the Homestead Act of 1862 to calculate possible perimeters (fencing) for homesteads of 160 acres. Students will use area, perimeter, arrays, factors, fractions, scale, and exact measurement of units to "prove up!"

I use 5mm graph paper found at http://incompetech.com/graphpaper/
