Real-World Perimeter in Math
We are working on perimeter in math. Students have been learning how to calculate perimeter and what measuring tools are best used to calculate perimeter. We measured the tennis courts and had a discussion about why it had the certain perimeter it did. Then, we had been talking about miles. We went to the track so the students could understand how one lap was 400 meters, but how 4 laps was a mile. To cap it off, we split the class up and a 4 x 1 relay race. It was a lot of fun!
