PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Word problems relating to perimeter, area, measurement, and money. Students work from diagrams and verbal information about measurement to infer and calculate perimeter and cost of paint for striping football fields and basketball courts.

Calculator use is an option. Several of the problems require multiplication of money amounts.

1. Calculating perimeters
2. Converting linear measurements from feet to yards and vice-versa.
3. Calculating area of rectangles.
4. General problem solving, including “interpret the remainder” questions.
5. Multiplication of money amounts by single-digit numbers.
