GEOBOARDS

Geoboards are wonderful tools for exploring the concept of area. To change the picture all we have to do is move the geobands! If you do not have geoboards, use the grids to do the explorations.

Start by making as many different sized squares as you can on your geoboard. Sketch them on the grids below.

What is the area of the smallest square?

What is the area of the largest square?

Make as many different rectangles as you can that have an area of 4 square units.

Sketch them on the grids. Find their perimeters. Are the perimeters all the same?

Make as many different rectangles as you can that have an area of 4 square units.

Sketch them on the grids. Find their perimeters. Are the perimeters all the same?

Finding Triangles:

Make as many different triangles as you can that have an area of 2 square units.

Sketch them on the grids. Explain, in your own words, how your formed them.

Area
• Find the area of each polygon by counting unit squares.
Areas of Irregular Figures
• Find the area of each of the figures. Make sure to keep track of your work and/or the process you took as you found the area.
Areas on a Geoboard
• Addition method divide an area into smaller pieces and then add the areas.

Rectangle method – construct a rectangle encompassing the entire figure and then subtract the areas of the unshaded regions.

Find the area of the figure.

The area of the hexagon equals the area of the surrounding rectangle minus the sum of the areas of figures a, b, c, d, e, f, and g.

Area and Perimeter Connections

Consider a rectangle that has length and width measurements that are whole numbers. Given the below conditions determine the length and width measurements for two examples. If it is not possible to create such a rectangle, explain why.

1. The area is 30 square units.

2. The perimeter is 30 units.

3. The area is 25 square units.

4. The perimeter is 25 units.

5. The area is an even whole number

6. The perimeter is an even whole number.

7. The area is an odd whole number.

8. The perimeter is an odd whole number.

9. The area is a prime number.

10. The perimeter is a prime number.

11. What generalizations can be made regarding area and perimeter of rectangles? Consider only whole numbers in your generalizations.

12. What generalizations can be made about the relationship between area and perimeter of a rectangle? Consider only whole numbers in your generalizations.

Finding Area by Dissection

1. How do you compute the area of a rectangle?

2. Illustrate a concrete method of finding the area of a rectangle.

Area = length x width

= lw

6 x 3 = 18

Use the rectangle you created to find the formula for the area of a triangle.

• If the formula for the area of the triangle is half of the rectangle, why is the formula ½ bh rather than ½ lw?
Figure One

a. Can you make a non-rectangular parallelogram with these two pieces?

b. Describe the process from part a.

A right triangle was cut from one end of the rectangle and slid to the other side to create a non-rectangular parallelogram.

c. Based on your observation, write a sentence describing the area of a parallelogram.

d. Write a formula for the area of a parallelogram.

The area of the rectangle is equal to the area of the parallelogram. The width of the rectangle is equal to the height of the parallelogram and the length is equal to the base.

Area = base x height

Area = bh

Figure Two
• Cut out both figure two shapes from your material sheet.
• What are the two shapes?
• What word describes the relationship between the two shapes?
• b. Put the two shapes together to form a parallelogram.
•  c. Describe the process from part b.

Trapezoids

Congruent

Two congruent trapezoids were put together by rotating one of them 180o to form a parallelogram

Figure Two continued

d. Based on your observations, write a sentence describing the area of one of these shapes.

Top Bottom

Bottom Top

The area of the trapezoid is half the area of the parallelogram (½bh). The base of the parallelogram is equal to the top + bottom of the trapezoid.

Area = ½ (top + bottom) height

Area = ½ (a + b)h = ½ (b1 + b2)h

Problem Solving Application.

You have an unusually shaped pool and you need to buy a pool cover. The pool cover cost \$4.25 per square foot. How much will it cost to cover your pool?

Triangle: ½ bh =

½ (3 x 8) = 12 ft2

Rectangle: lw =

10 x 8 = 80 ft2

Parallelogram: bh =

12 x 4 = 48 ft2

Pool Area = 12 + 80 + 48 = 140ft2

Cost = 140 x \$4.25 = \$595

Find the areas:

20 cm2

56 cm2

How can you use these shapes to come up with the formula for the area of a: rectangle, parallelogram, triangle, and parallelogram?
What is a circle?
• Share definitions.

A collection of points equidistant from a given point

What does a compass do?

• Draw a circle with your compass.
Circumference
• What is a circumference?

The total distance around a circle.

• What is a diameter?
Diameter explorations
• Take one of the circular objects and piece of string.
• Mark the length of the diameter on your piece of string
• How many of those diameters fit around the circumference of your circular object?

3.14 = pi ( )

Understanding Circles

Locate at least 4 round objects and measure the diameter and measure the circumference of each. Record your results in the table below. Be sure to include the units you used in the measuring process.

Circumference ÷ Diameter

Circumference = d

Circumference = 2 r

Circumference

Pi = Circumference ÷ diameter

Circumference of a Circle

Circle – the set of all points in a plane that are the same distance from a given point, the center.

Circumference – the perimeter of a circle.

Pi – the ratio between the circumference of a circle and the length of its diameter.

Find each of the following:

a. The circumference of a circle with radius 2 m. Leave answer in terms of pi

b.The radius of a circle with circumference 15π m

4π m

7.5 m

Discovering and Relating Area FormulasUsing Dot Paper
• Area is a spatial concept – a covering of two-dimensional space.
• Complete the tables
• What do you need to watch for with your students when doing the triangle, parallelogram, and trapezoid?
• Generalize patterns in the table
• Write the generalized formula for each
Alpha Shapes
• Sort the alpha shapes into two different categories
• You will need the quadrilaterals from the alphashapes and a partner!
• Cut on the dotted lines. Make 2 piles of cards: (1) one pile contains all attributes referring to angles and (2) the other pile contains all attributes referring to sides. Piles should be placed upside down. Upon your turn, take one card from each pile. You then look for all the quadrilateral alphashapes that match both the attributes on the side and angle cards. Those quadrilaterals that match both become “captured” by you. It is than your opponents turn. He/she will follow the same procedures. Once a quadrilateral is “captured” it may not be taken unless the “WILD CARD” is used. The player(s) with the most “captured” quadrilaterals at the end is the winner!
What is My Shape?

Use one set of Shapes – spread them out in the middle of the table.

Group members take turns being the chooser.

The chooser chooses one of the Shapes while group members need to find the shape that matches the shape the chooser choose.

Group members are only allowed to ask the chooser “yes” or “no” questions to help narrow down the possibilities.

Group members are not allowed to point to a shape and ask, “Is this the one?”

Also, group members are not allowed to ask questions about the letter on the shape.

Rather, they must continue to ask questions that reduce the choices to one shape by using different attributes of the Shapes.

Once a group has an idea what shape was chosen, they ask the chooser if they are correct.

Alpha Shapes and Area
• Using the centimeter grid paper, find the area of shape W, you may need to estimate.
• Comparing Shapes – Two V’s
• What is the area of V?
• How can you use V to help find the area of C?
Comparing Shapes

1) Compare the area of each piece to the areas of W and Q. Sort the shapes into five piles, as shown:

a) Area less than W

b) Area same as W

c) Area greater than W but less than Q

d) Area same as Q

e) Area greater than Q
