Area & Formula

LI: to use formulas to find out the area of a shape.

This week, we have been learning about how to calculate the area of multiple 2D shapes using formulas. We have also been doing this with perimeter. We have also been focusing on circumference which is the distance aroun d the circle.

For example, the formula to find the circumference of a circle is C=pi x diameter (which means 3.14 multiplied by the diameter).

I enjoyed this kind of maths because I learnt more about geometry & how important it is to understand the formula before solving a problem.
