## Reflection: Complex Tasks Renovate a Park by Applying Radicals and Formulas - Section 3: Partner Work

Even relatively simple tasks can have hidden complexity. For example, in this activity several students miscalculated the perimeter of the whole infield by making the mistake of multiplying the perimeter of one half of the infield by 2.  This method works with area but not with perimeter.  I show the common mistake in the resources of this section.
