Using a sheet of paper and a simple rule for creating a polygon, many interesting area and perimeter problems can be explored with paper and pencil, Fathom, and The Geometer’s Sketchpad. Most of NCTM’s Content and Process Standards are embedded in these problems, which can be differentiated for classroom use. Participants will receive all materials to implement these problems in their own classrooms.
