MA.5.GR.2.1

Find the perimeter and area of a rectangle with fractional or decimal side lengths using visual models and formulas.

Clarifications

Clarification 1: Instruction includes finding the area of a rectangle with fractional side lengths by tiling it with squares having unit fraction side lengths and showing that the area is the same as would be found by multiplying the side lengths.

Clarification 2: Responses include the appropriate units in word form.
