Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we are going to be investigating rectangles.


We should know that the perimeter of any shape is the total distance around the edge.


Hopefully, we also know the formula for finding the area of a rectangle. It is the length x the width.


However, in this activity we are going to be challenging ourselves with some more unusual types of calculations. 


You will need to be a true maths detective to tackle them. Are you ready to begin?
