Reflection: Student Grouping Area, Perimeter, and Circumference - Section 2: Group Work


I used the exit tickets from the previous week’s lessons to group students homogeneously.  At the beginning of the group work time, each group received the exit tickets from three lessons: Area of Triangles, Area of Composite Shapes, and Area vs. Circumference.  Before groups could get their first task they needed to work together to correct any errors on these exit tickets.  Because students were grouped homogeneously, students typically had a similar number/kind of mistakes.  I thought it was important that students recognize and remedy these mistakes before moving on to the more complex tasks for this lesson.

Area, Perimeter, and Circumference

Unit 8: Geometry
Lesson 7 of 19

Objective: SWBAT: • Find the area and perimeter of irregular shapes by decomposing them into squares, rectangles, and circles.

Big Idea: Which option makes more pizza? Students apply their knowledge of perimeter, area, and circumference to calculate the perimeter and area of irregular shapes.
