Unit 7, Lesson 15# Solve word problems to determine perimeter with given side lengths

EngageNY 60 min(s)

In this lesson, students solve word problems involving the perimeter of rectangles and other types of polygons. (For example, "Mrs. Kozlow put a border around a 5-foot by 6-foot rectangular bulletin board. How many feet of border did Mrs. Kozlow use?") They draw a picture of the situation, label the information they know, determine other essential information, and write an expression to calculate the answer.
