 545: Discover the Basics - Perimeter, Area, & Volume 138 pages - \$45.95 Teacher Edition, \$29.95 Home Edition For some students, perimeter, area, and volume signal vague, half-remembered rules and formulas. Also, these learners tend not to be aware of the relative size of inches and feet, meters and centimeters. If that isn't enough, it comes as a big surprise to them that there is more than one kind of footâ€”linear, square and cubic! This book changes all that. It provides stimulating tactile/visual experiences that take measurement out of mere theory and into understandingâ€”so that every student "gets the picture."
 Home Ideal for homeschool instruction, parents wanting to support their child's school work and, Teacher teachers wanting to introduce or consolidate concepts.

In this book, the concept of "pi" is presented with visual and conceptual clarity. Students move from the area of a square through the area of hexagons and octagons observing the ratio of a side then the width to the perimeter. The book leads thought incrementally from perimeter to circumference and compares the area of polygons with the area of a circle. They are also given a visual representation of multiplying "pi."

Students are not asked to remember and apply what they do not understand. This same care is given to squares and roots used in calculating the mysterious hypotenuse and to brushing up on other underlying concepts and skills that enable success with measurement.
