Reflection: Relevance Patterns with Perimeter and Area - Section 2: Concept Development


This lesson was a great lesson and one that allowed most students to feel very successful.  I did have a few students that thought the word problems were too easy, so I would add in some others, or change the numbers for some students in the future.  This lesson was smooth and a nice change of pace from learning "new" concepts  to practicing skills already gained. 

Students felt as if they discovered a "secret" when they realized that when side lengths are closer together in range, and the shape is more square the area is greater.
