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 Comparing Area:**

**Varied Fluency**

**Developing **Questions to support comparing the area of squares and rectangles. Each square on the grid has an area of 1cm2.

**Expected **Questions to support comparing the area of rectilinear shapes. Each square on the grid has an area of 1cm2.

**Greater Depth **Questions to support comparing the area of rectilinear shapes. Includes comparing shapes on grids where one has 1cm2 squares and the other has 2cm2 squares.

**Reasoning and Problem Solving**

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

**Developing **Use two clues and an image of Shape A to compare and find the possible area of Shape B on a grid where each square has an area of 1cm2.

**Expected **Use four clues to compare and find the possible area of Shape A and B on a grid where each square has an area of 1cm2.

**Greater Depth **Use four clues to compare and find the possible area of Shape A and B. Includes comparing shapes on grids where one has 1cm2 squares and the other has 2cm2 squares.

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

**Developing **Complete the drawing of a rectangle, with a smaller or bigger area than a given value, on a grid where each square has an area of 1cm2.

**Expected **Draw a rectilinear shape, with a smaller or bigger area than a given value, on a grid where each square has an area of 1cm2.

**Greater Depth **Draw a rectilinear shape, with a smaller or bigger area than a given value, and a smaller or bigger number of given sides, on a grid where each square has an area of 2cm2.

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

**Developing **Explain which statement comparing the area of squares and rectangles is correct. Each square on the grid has an area of 1cm2.

**Expected **Explain which statement comparing the area of rectilinear shapes is correct. Each square on the grid has an area of 1cm2.

**Greater Depth **Explain which statement comparing the area of rectilinear shapes is correct. Includes comparing shapes on grids where one has 1cm2 squares and the other has 2cm2 squares.

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

**Varied Fluency**

**Developing **Questions to support finding the approximate area of irregular shapes where each square represents 1cm² or m².

**Expected **Questions to support finding the approximate area of irregular shapes where each square represents 2, 3, 4 or 5cm² or m².

**Greater Depth **Questions to support finding the approximate area of irregular shapes where each square represents 0.5, 1.5, 2.5 or 3.5cm² or m².

**Reasoning and Problem Solving**

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

**Developing **Finding the approximate area of an irregular shape where each square represents 1cm² or m² and the image is on the grid lines.

**Expected **Finding the approximate area of an irregular shape where each square represents 2, 3, 4 or 5cm² or m² and the image sits between the grid lines.

**Greater Depth **Finding the approximate area of an irregular shape where each square represents 0.5, 1.5, 2.5 or 3.5cm² or m² and the image sits between the grid lines with varying orientation.

**Questions 2, 5 and 8 (Reasoning)**

**Developing **Identify and explain mistakes when finding the approximate area of an irregular shape where each square represents 1cm² or m². The image will sit on the grid lines.

**Expected **Identify and explain mistakes when finding the approximate area of an irregular shape where each square represents 2, 3, 4 or 5cm² or m². The image will sit between the grid lines.

**Greater Depth **Identify and explain mistakes when finding the approximate area of an irregular shape where each square represents 0.5, 1.5, 2.5 or 3.5cm² or m². The image will sit between the grid lines and the orientation will be different.

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

**Developing **Draw an irregular shaped object with a given area (approximately) where each square represents 1cm² or m².

**Expected **Draw an irregular shaped object with a given area (approximately), where each square represents 2, 3, 4 or 5cm² or m².

**Greater Depth **Draw an irregular shaped object with a given area (approximately), where each square represents 0.5, 1.5, 2.5 or 3.5cm² or m².
