*Note: THIS DOCUMENT ONLY CONTAINS AREA PROBLEMS (no perimeter and volume)
Area problems aren’t so cut and dry anymore. Students are being asked to double dimensions, compare the square footage of two figures, find missing sides of objects, etc. If your students need more practice with these higher level thinking skills, you’ll love this document.
Included in the download are 20 open ended problems that strictly focus on area. Research shows that teaching area in isolation from perimeter helps student to retain the concept. There is a mixture of word problems, diagrams on grids, multi-step problems, finding missing sides, etc. Answer key is included for student self-check or teacher quick-check.
You can use this document as task cards, cutting each problem out and using the included answer recording sheet. I use this as homework for my special education students during the unit- printing out one full sheet per night. You can even use them as an assessment, quick check, spiral ticket out the door, the options are endless.
Students will also need to be familiar with multiplying a decimal by a whole number for a few of the questions.
