In your Math lessons, you will be concentrating on working with flat shapes to find perimeters and areas. Objects in real-life also have perimeters and areas too. Think of a cricket pitch. It has a specific length and width - and therefore you would be able to work out both perimeter and area.

On your travels this week, see how many objects you can spot where the perimeter could be found quite easily. For some objects, you'd only need a ruler.

1.

Which one of the given statements is correct?

The shortest side of a right angled triangle is called the hypotenuse

The perimeter of a circle is called the circumference

π = ^{23}⁄_{7}

The area of a rectangle = length + width

The hypotenuse is the longest side

2.

Which one of the given statements is correct?

The length of the perimeter of a rectangle = twice the length + twice the width

A rectangle has three edges

The area of a rectangle = ^{1}⁄_{2} × base × height

The fewer sides that a shape has the smaller its area

A triangle has three edges

3.

Which one of the given statements is correct?

A cuboid has six faces

A cube has 14 edges

The circle is the only 2D shape that has a curved perimeter

A quadrilateral has at least five sides

A quadrilateral has only four sides

4.

Which one of the given statements is correct?

The area of a triangle = base × height

To change from square centimeters to square millimeters, you have to multiply the square centimeters by 10

It's important to know how to convert measurements - you could lose valuable points in exams and tests if you don't

7.

Which one of the given statements is correct?

To change from square millimeters to square meters, divide the square millimeters by 10,000

There are 1,000,000 mm^{2} in 1 m^{2}

To change from square meters to square millimeters, divide the square meters by 1,000,000

There are 10,000 mm^{2} in 1 m^{2}
