Unit 7, Lesson 23# Solve a variety of word problems with perimeter

EngageNY 60 min(s)

In this lesson, students work in groups to solve word problems involving perimeter. (For example, "The perimeter of a rectangular bathroom is 32 feet. The width of the room is 8 feet. What is the length of the room?") For each problem, students draw the situation and write an equation in order to solve. During the course of the lesson, they examine each other's solutions and assess the reasonableness of their answers.
