In this post we write about making of the maths perimeter and area formulas working model – maths tlm – diy | craftpiller

Creating a working model to represent the perimeter and area formulas for polygons using cardboard and color paper can be an excellent way to visualize and understand these concepts.

Let’s build a simple model that represents different polygons and showcases their perimeter and area formulas.

Materials needed:

Cardboard (for the base and structures)

Color paper (for representing different polygons and formulas)

Scissors

Glue or double-sided tape

Marker pens or sketch pens

Polygons to include in the model:

Square

Rectangle

Triangle

Circle

Parallelogram

Step-by-step instructions:

Base:

Cut a large rectangular or square piece of cardboard to serve as the base for the model.

Shapes Representation:

Use color paper to create representations of each polygon (square, rectangle, triangle, circle, parallelogram).

Cut out shapes from color paper based on their respective dimensions.

Perimeter and Area Formulas:

Write the formulas for perimeter and area on separate small rectangles of color paper for each polygon.

Parallelogram: Perimeter = 2 × (side1 + side2), Area = base × height

Placement on the Base:

Arrange the color paper representations of polygons on the base, leaving enough space for the formulas to be placed next to each polygon.

Labeling and Details:

Use marker pens or sketch pens to label each polygon and its corresponding formula for perimeter and area.

Decorating the Model:

Use markers or color paper to decorate the model and add more details to make it visually appealing.

Now, you have a perimeter and area formulas working model using cardboard and color paper. This model visually represents different polygons and their respective formulas for perimeter and area
