Maths - Measurement

WALT find perimeters and areas of simple shapes

Perimeter is the distance around the outside of the shape. You find the perimeter by adding all of the lengths together.

Area is inside the shape. You find the area by multiplying the length and width of the shape. 

Example: I have a rectangle that is 6cm by 4cm. P = 6 + 6 + 4 + 4 = 20cm A = 6 x 4 = 24cm squared
