12.5.20 - Perimeter of a rectilinear shapes


Watch the video using the link below to help you to remember how to calculate the perimeter of rectilinear shapes.


The perimeter is the distance all the way around the outside of a 2D shape. To work out the perimeter, add up the lengths of all the sides. If you are only given two sides, the opposite sides are always the same.


Add up the lengths of every side or count the squares. You don't need to count the corners. Check carefully to make sure you have added every side and not missed one. 


Then complete both pages of the activity below.

There is a word document version and a PDF version - use which ever one is best for you to access.


Don't worry if you can't to print out the sheets, work out the answers and write them onto paper. Use the class email to send me your work - you can take a photo or send it on a word document.
