Middle School: Circumference, Perimeter

In grades 6-8, students explore the relations among similar objects, solving problems that link length, perimeter, area, and volume. In order to do so, students must learn to calculate the perimeter of a variety of objects.

Problems that allow middle-school students to practice finding the perimeter or circumference of an object are listed below. They address the NCTM Geometry Standard for Grades 6-8 expectation that students will be able to analyze characteristics and properties of two- and three-dimensional geometric shapes and develop mathematical arguments about geometric relationships.

For background information elsewhere on our site, explore the Middle School Geometry area of the Ask Dr. Math archives. For relevant sites on the Web, browse and search Euclidean Plane Geometry in our Internet Mathematics Library; to find middle-school sites, go to the bottom of the page, set the searcher for middle school (6-8), and press the Search button.
