This article explores some ideas that are important to bear in mind when teaching about area, and suggests some resources that may be useful.
This problem combines both area and perimeter by inviting students to consider the different possibilities for the perimeter when the area of a rectangle is fixed.
This problem challenges students to work systematically while applying their knowledge of areas of rectangles.
This problem offers students the opportunity to calculate areas of parts of circles and use $\pi$ in calculations.
This problem offers students insights into differentiation, integration and the relationships between the two without needing to get involved with technical manipulations.
This problem draws together coordinate geometry, equations of circles, and surds, and can also be approached using integration.
