In this activity, students will use basic concepts of perimeter and area to investigate a classic problem situation requiring maximization. They must decide how to build a garden fence to enclose the largest possible area.
Students will find the possible lengths and enter the expression to find the area.
Then, students will find which pair shows the maximum area and use the scatter plot to display the relationship between two sets of paired data (width and area).
