This week students have been learning how to measure the surface area of objects in our classroom using uniform informal units such as 100s blocks, unifix and dice.

Today they tested their knowledge by problem solving.

Students were required to try and estimate and measure surface areas that they thought would have an area of 60 unifix.

They organised their findings by listing what they found as having an area of less than 60, more than 60 or an area of exactly 60.
