Area, perimeter and volume: rectilinear shapes, triangles, parallelograms and cuboids
This guide provides a sequence of small steps for exploring and connecting perimeter, area and volume from using squared paper to explore the area of rectilinear shapes, triangles and parallelograms to revisiting volume and working with cubic units.
