Activity Overview

This activity allows students to investigate the maximum area of a rectangle with a fixed perimeter.

Before the Activity

Download the TNS file to student handhelds and read through the directions in the worksheets.

During the Activity

Students should be able to complete this activity individually. The teacher can get them to change the perimeter of the rectangle before beginning the investigation so that students are working with different values from one another. All questions can be answered on the handheld.
