This task asks students to pretend they have been hired by a home improvement company to solve two problems for them. The first job requires students to examine the relationship between perimeter and area to help "Mr. Baker" design his garden. The second job focuses students on applying their understanding of area to help a family tile their kitchen. Let me know if you like it and I will upload some more tasks.
