Packet 5: Perimeter and Area
Perimeter
The perimeter of a polygon is the sum of the lengths of the
sides of the polygon. Think of a police show when they
“have the perimeter surrounded”.
Perimeter
is only the
outside!
Perimeter means add up all the sides.
For a circle, we call the perimeter “circumference”.
Perimeters and Lengths are measured in feet, inches, meters, etc.
Area
The Area of a figure is the number of square units needed to cover a surface.
Think of an area rug.
Areas are measured in square feet, square inches, square meters, etc.
Area
covers the
inside!

Sometimes you need to find the area of an odd-shaped figure. We can use our knowledge
of area of polygons and circles to help us find the area of an odd-shaped figure.
