Area & Perimeter

This week we have started learning about area and perimeter. Yesterday we made square metres out of newspaper, sticky tape and 30cm rulers. Our group made our square metre by putting two peices of paper together, we measured 90cm using a 30cm ruler and then measured 10cm to add up to a metre. Then did the same with all the other sides. We ruled it out with a metre ruler and we were only a few mm off. This is my idea of area and perimeter. Perimeter is the outside or outline of an object. Area is the inside of an object or how much area it takes up.

Maths

At the start of the year there is always lots of tests. I dont like tests, they always seem to worry me about how well I do. I know tests are for teachers to see what level the student is on but I still dont like them. I’m still a bit scatchy with my seven and eight times tables when teachers just ask me when I dont write it down. I like all the other times tables. I like Addition, Subtraction, I’m not realy sure with divided by’s. My favorite maths site is http://www.coolmaths-games.com/
