I would like for my students to do a collaborative project between class periods invloving perimeter. I would assign each student a partner from another class period. The objective would be for the students to be able to calculate perimeters for regular and non-regular polygons.I would provide a set of templates of each type of polygon for the students but they would have to measure each side and record their results. They could use google docs to do this and their partner could "see" the results and compare their own findings. I would also ask for a written description of how they calculated their results, and where they found any formulas used.
