Mathematics Year 4: (4M7b) Find the area of rectilinear shapes by counting squares

Mathematics Year 5: (5M7b) Calculate and compare the area of rectangles (including squares), and including using standard units, square centimetres (cm2) and square metres (m2) and estimate the area of irregular shapes

**Differentiation for Year 4 Making Shapes:**

**Varied Fluency**

**Developing **Questions to support making squares and rectangles and then counting the area.

**Expected **Questions to support making rectilinear shapes using squares and then counting the area.

**Greater Depth **Questions to support making rectilinear shapes using squares and half squares then counting the area and the perimeter.

**Reasoning and Problem Solving**

**Questions 1, 4 and 7 (Reasoning)**

**Developing **Determine whether the given statement about making shapes is correct. Using up to 10 square tiles to make a square or a rectangle.

**Expected **Determine whether the given statement about making shapes is correct. Using up to 20 square tiles to make a square or a rectangle.

**Greater Depth **Determine whether the given statement about making shapes is correct. Using square or half square tiles to make a rectilinear shape.

**Questions 2, 5 and 8 (Problem Solving)**

**Developing **Draw two possible squares or rectangles to match a given area using square tiles.

**Expected **Draw three possible rectilinear shapes to match a given area using square tiles.

**Greater Depth **Draw three possible rectilinear shapes to match a given area using square or half square tiles.

**Questions 3, 6 and 9 (Problem Solving)**

**Developing **Reflect a square or rectangle on a grid and determine the area of the completed shape.

**Expected **Reflect a rectilinear shape on a grid and determine the area of the completed shape. Shapes have up to 8 sides.

**Greater Depth **Reflect a rectilinear shape on a grid and determine the area of the completed shape. Shapes have more than 8 sides.

**Differentiation for Year 5 Area of Compound Shapes:**

**Varied Fluency**

**Developing **Questions to support finding the area of compound shapes involving whole measurements of the same unit (cm or m).

**Expected **Questions to support finding the area of compound shapes involving whole measurements of different units (mm and cm; cm and m).

**Greater Depth **Questions to support finding the area of compound shapes involving measurements of different units (mm and cm; cm and m) up to 1 decimal place.

**Reasoning and Problem Solving**

**Questions 1, 4 and 7 (Problem Solving)**

**Developing **Investigate different compound shapes that comply with a given set of criteria. Using whole lengths of the same unit (mm or cm only).

**Expected **Investigate different compound shapes that comply with a given set of criteria. Using whole lengths of different units (mm and cm; cm and m).

**Greater Depth **Investigate different compound shapes that comply with a given set of criteria. Using lengths of different units (mm and cm; cm and m) up to 1 decimal place.

**Questions 2, 5 and 8 (Problem Solving)**

**Developing **Find missing lengths for both shapes using the criteria given. Using whole lengths of the same unit (mm or cm only).

**Expected **Find missing lengths for both shapes using the criteria given. Using whole lengths of different units (mm and cm; cm and m).

**Greater Depth **Find missing lengths for both shapes using the criteria given. Using lengths of different units (mm and cm; cm and m) up to 1 decimal place.

**Questions 3, 6 and 9 (Reasoning)**

**Developing **A compound shape and the possible area is provided. Pupils to decide if the area is correct or not and provide evidence for their answer. Using whole lengths of the same unit (mm or cm only).

**Expected **A compound shape and the possible area is provided. Pupils to decide if the area is correct or not and provide evidence for their answer. Using whole lengths of different units (mm and cm; cm and m).

**Greater Depth **– Find a missing area of a compound shape where the lengths for the missing shape are unclear. Using lengths of different units (mm and cm; cm and m) up to 1 decimal place.
