Designing Using Perimeter and Area

Subject(s): Math/Special Ed
 Grade Level: 5-6
Author(s): Erin Hansen
Synopsis: What is the best dog run?  Do you want the largest area?  Given a fixed perimeter, how can you change the area?  Design a dog run to promote dog health at the Humane Society, given a limited amount of fencing material.  Does doubling the amount of material (perimeter) double the available area?  What shape gives the largest area?  Is this the most beneficial for a dog?
Driving Question: How can you design a dog run to promote dog health, given a limited amount of fencing material?
