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.
