## Testimonials

What a brilliant site you have!!! I love it, especially as it saves me hours and hours of hard work. Others who haven't found your site yet don't know what they are missing!

## Australia – Australian Curriculum

• ##### Measurement and Geometry
• Using units of measurement

• ACMMG137 – Solve problems involving the comparison of lengths and areas using appropriate units

## New Zealand – National Standards

• ##### 7.GM – Geometry and measurement
• 7.GM.3 – Use side or edge lengths to find the perimeters and areas of rectangles and parallelograms and the volumes of cuboids, given whole-number dimensions

## United Kingdom – National Curriculum

• ##### Year 5 programme of study
• KS2.Y5.M – Measurement

• Pupils should be taught to:

• KS2.Y5.M.4 – Calculate and compare the area of rectangles (including squares), including using standard units, square centimetres (cm²) and square metres (m²), and estimate the area of irregular shapes

## United States – Common Core State Standards

• ##### 4.MD – Measurement & Data
• Mathematics

• 4.MD.3 – Apply the area and perimeter formulas for rectangles in real world and mathematical problems. For example, find the width of a rectangular room given the area of the flooring and the length, by viewing the area formula as a multiplication equation with an unknown factor.

• ##### 5.NF – Number & Operations—Fractions
• Mathematics

• 5.NF.4 – Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction or whole number by a fraction.

• 5.NF.4.b – Find the area of a rectangle with fractional side lengths by tiling it with unit squares of the appropriate unit fraction side lengths, and show that the area is the same as would be found by multiplying the side lengths. Multiply fractional side lengths to find areas of rectangles, and represent fraction products as rectangular areas.
