Your students will become junior math detectives as they hunt down the missing side of a rectangle by applying the area formula for rectangles. The only clues they have are the rectangle's area and the measure of one side.
This resource will help assess your students' mastery of concepts surrounding measurement and time. This worksheet will challenge your third graders with problems on area, perimeter, measurement, and elapsed time problems.
Students will use the inverse relationship between multiplication and division to complete an area formula in a real-world situation. Use this lesson on its own or as support for the lesson The Case of the Missing Rectangle Side.
Area models are building blocks to more complicated multiplication and division. Use this lesson to refresh students on the relationship between multiplication and area to prepare them to use the area models strategy with larger numbers.
Help your students get creative as they apply multiplication skills to find the area of a community garden of their own design! In this lesson, students will practice finding the area of a rectangle within a real-world context.
Start a dialogue around area models! In this lesson, encourage students to ask questions as they multiply using area models. Use this lesson on its own or as support to the lesson Area Models and Multiplication.
