The biggest area

Grade 3 students learned about area and perimeter relationships. The planned how to share their learning with friends and family. Their ideas and feedback from parents were used to make this song.

Some people think ... that math is hard
but I must disagree
my daughter is awesome ... at doing math
and has fun solving problems

Math and stories ... go together well
to teach kids in better ways
using diagrams ... helps them see
and learn to understand

How do you build ... a pen for your dog
that has the biggest area
with only 20 ... metres of fence
what are the dimensions?

 

 

Is it 1 by 9 ... or 2 by 8
or maybe 3 by 7
what about ... 4 by 6
or is it 5 by 5?

What’s the solution ... so many shapes
with same perimeter
I see a pattern ... in the table
the bar graph and the diagrams

My daughter ... she likes to think
and solve big math problems
the same perimeter ... but different areas
the square it makes the biggest
the same perimeter ... but different areas
the square it makes the biggest
