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.3 – Measure and calculate the perimeter of composite rectilinear shapes in centimetres and metres

## United States – Common Core State Standards

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

• 3.MD.7 – Relate area to the operations of multiplication and addition.

• 3.MD.7.d – Recognize area as additive. Find areas of rectilinear figures by decomposing them into non-overlapping rectangles and adding the areas of the non-overlapping parts, applying this technique to solve real world problems.
