Learning Experiences A. Preparatory Activities 1. Drill What formula do we use to find the perimeter of a: -rectangle -triangle -pentagon -square -rhombus -octagon 2. Review What must be remembered in solving word problems? What are the steps? 3. Motivation Who comes to school by just walking? How far do you walk from your home to the school? Do you know how to find it? B. Developmental Activities 1. Presentation Vince walked from his house to the school, then to the market, and then back home. How far did he walk?

a. b. c. d. e. f.

What distances are given in the problem? What is asked in the problem? What is the word clue? What process is needed to solve the problem? What is the number sentence? What is the answer to the problem?

Another example: A rectangular lot has a length of 20 m and a width of 18 m. What is it perimeter?

What is asked? ______________________________________ What are given? _____________________________________ What is the process to be needed? ______________________ What is the mathematical sentence? _____________________ What is the answer? __________________________________

2. Fixing Skills We will have our groupings now. What will you do while working? Each group will solve a problem. Follow the steps in problem solving. Post the manila paper on the board for checking. a. First Group Sonny walked around a small basketball court. The rectangular court is 8 meters long and 4 meters wide. What is the perimeter of the rectangular court?

b. Second Group Jay enclosed his vegetable garden with a fence. The five sides of the garden measure 10, 12, 12, 14 and 8 meters respectively. How long is the fence? c. Third Group An equilateral triangle has a perimeter equal to the perimeter of a rectangle whose length is 12 m and whose width is 8.7 m. Find the measurements of the sides of the equilateral triangle. d. Fourth Group A perimeter of a square is 48 cm. What is the length of one side? 3. Generalization How do we solve word problems? How do we get the perimeter of a polygon? To solve word problems, we follow the steps in solving word problems and then apply the formula to find the perimeter of a particular plane figure. C. Application Solve the word problem by yourself. For your project in EPP, you make a square frame that measures 45 centimeters on one side. What is the perimeter of the frame? IV. Evaluation Solve the word problems. Follow the steps in problem solving. 1. Jocelyns rectangular flower garden has a length of 10 meters and a width of 6 meters. Find the perimeter of the garden. 2. On one side of a square playground of San Isidro Elementary School measures 120 meters. How many meters of chicken wire are needed to enclose the playground?

3. There are 15 regular hexagonal poster frames in Willys gallery. Each side of the frame is 22 cm long. How much wood had been used for the frames? 4. A rectangular tablecloth is 225 cm long and 95 cm wide. How long is the lace needed to put as an edging for the tablecloth? 5. A softball diamond is 20 meters long on each side. How many meters does a player run if he a makes a homerun? V. Assignment A. Solve the following: 1. Rex bought an octagonal mirror with each side measuring 25 cm. What is the perimeter of the mirror? 2. Jelleni jogs around a triangular park which measures 425 meters, 350 meters, and 435 meters. How far will she jog if she goes around the park twice? B. Make 2 word problems involving any of the polygons learned.
