Big Ideas: Real life complex situations can be modeled using known shapes. Figures with the same perimeter can enclose different areas. This task builds on work students have done in previous grades, such as when they solved real world problems involving area working on standard 7.G.B.6. Students are asked to maximize area given a limited perimeter. Vocabulary: area, maximum, perimeter, restriction Special Materials: drawing paper, straightedge
