Puzzling maths

This week, the children in Year 6 completed area and perimeter investigations as a part of their measurement topic. They thoroughly enjoyed working in pairs and the teachers were very impressed with the mathematical vocabulary the children used. Have a look at the attached question, that the pictured children are solving. You can see that some children chose to solve this problem by using squared paper; other children calculated the area of each square and then found possible factors of the area of the rectangle.
