Challenge students with a problem solving task that involves area, the Pythagorean Theorem, quadratics, and dogs in a real world application.
In this activity, students experiment with different options for building a fence to enclose a dog area. Changing the length of the fence changes the area, and students can use multiple skills and concepts to examine this relationship.
This activity is great for Algebra I or Geometry students. You will receive the one-page handout and an answer key in PDF format.
