Students will spend time in this cluster learning about and applying the concepts of area of rectangles and
perimeter of various shapes (with an emphasis on quadrilaterals). They will work with manipulatives to
tile the areas of various quadrilaterals to build a foundation of area and perimeter. The focus of this
cluster is NOT about the “formula” for area or perimeter; the focus is on understanding. (See About this Cluster and the Unpacking Document below for more details on this cluster.)
