Area and Perimeter KS2
This collection is one of our Primary Curriculum collections - tasks that are grouped by topic.
Cut differently-sized square corners from a square piece of paper to make boxes without lids. Do they all have the same volume?
Can you draw a square in which the perimeter is numerically equal to the area?
Nine squares with side lengths 1, 4, 7, 8, 9, 10, 14, 15, and 18 cm can be fitted together to form a rectangle. What are the dimensions of the rectangle?
How can you arrange the 5 cubes so that you need the smallest number of Brush Loads of paint to cover them? Try with other numbers of cubes as well.
These rectangles have been torn. How many squares did each one have inside it before it was ripped?
Twice as Big?
Investigate how the four L-shapes fit together to make an enlarged L-shape. You could explore this idea with other shapes too.
Area and Perimeter
What can you say about these shapes? This problem challenges you to create shapes with different areas and perimeters.
What is the largest 'ribbon square' you can make? And the smallest? How many different squares can you make altogether?
Through the Window
My local DIY shop calculates the price of its windows according to the area of glass and the length of frame used. Can you work out how they arrived at these prices?
Area Worksheets 5th Grade
Area worksheets 5th grade introduce students to various types of shapes and how to calculate their areas. As the scope of the topic is very vast, hence, it is necessary for the students to get the right type of worksheet that will clear their concepts rather than confuse them.
Benefits of 5th Grade Area Worksheets
Area worksheets 5th grade tend to start with using simple shapes so that students can understand the application of the formulas. Gradually the level starts increasing wherein students have to solve more complex problems that might involve formula manipulations. By solving problems with a gradual increase in the level of difficulty, students can get a better understanding of the concepts associated with the topic. The benefit of these 5th grade math worksheets is that it provides a visual representation of the problems for students to understand the solutions at each level.
