Perimeter and Area! What's the difference? How can we tell them apart? Listen to the song and use the practice links!
Don't forget to check out what we are doing in math class by looking at the math notebook online! All students have the same notebook pages in their notebooks that are kept in class. They may take them home at any time, but MUST be returned every day.
