Perimeter Of Polygons Math Games

In this series of games, your students will learn to solve real world and mathematical problems involving perimeters of polygons. The Perimeter Of Polygons learning objective — based on CCSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research. This learning objective directly references 3.MD.D.8 as written in the common core national math standards.

Concepts Covered

A perimeter is the boundary of any 2-dimensional shape. The length of the perimeter of any polygon is the sum of all its sides. Given a rectangle with 2 adjacent sides given, find the perimeter by multiplying each side by 2 and adding the products. Given a rectangle with one side and perimeter labeled, find the missing side by doubling the side given, subtracting the product from the perimeter, then dividing the difference by 2. Given a rectangle with the area and one side labeled, find the missing side by dividing the area by the given side.

Create rectangles with different areas but the same perimeter. Create rectangles with the same perimeter but different areas. Given a rectangle with both sides and perimeter, identify other rectangles that have the same perimeter but a different length and width. Given the perimeter of a polygon and one missing side length, determine the missing side length. Identify the figure that matches the perimeter given.
