Working mathematically: reason; strategic play
Measurement: area & perimeter
Space: exploring 2D shapes patterns; congruence; boundaries
Measurement of perimeter and area has direct relevance to many everyday situations such as calculating the amount of material needed for fencing, dressmaking, floor covering or picture frames.
Children need to develop a sound understanding of the concept of perimeter as the outside edge enclosing a space and area as the surface of this shape.
Bug Bytes engages the player in a strategic game, which explores the measurement of perimeter and area using arbitrary units.
