Unit 5, Lesson 10# Distance, Perimeter, and Area in the Real World

EngageNY 45 min(s)Support for English Language Learners

Students determine distance, perimeter, and area in real-world contexts. The measuring tools, units, and degree of precision to be used in this activity should be chosen in a manner that best meets the needs of students. The critical understanding for students is that area involves covering, while perimeter involves surrounding. Since plane objects have both area and perimeter, the distinction between the two concepts must be made.
