Perimeter & Area

Perimeter & Area provides quizzes for calculating the perimeter and area of plane figures (triangles, rectangles, trapezoids, parallelograms).
The application content is aligned with CCSS Mathematics Standards and covers the following domains of CCSS for grades 3 through 7:
• Geometry;
• Measurement & Data.

Perimeter & Area content is also aligned with Singapore Math Practice.
The relationship between the quizzes and CCSS Mathematics Standards/Singapore Math Practice are described in CCSS/Singapore Math.

The snapshots below show how the app works. It is important that a user has to enter the name before taking the first quiz: this feature allows to use the application, installed on the same iPad, by multiple students.

Perimeter & Area offers:

 •  The 2 buttons  "Perimeter" & "Area" for selecting the type of practice,
 •  5 active pages:
    -  4 pages with separate quizzes for triangles, rectangles, parallelograms, and trapezoids;
    -  the page with quizzes for all types of plain figures.

Each active page includes:

• a screen section with the shape;
• a task message for the current quiz;
• four multiple choice answer buttons;
• a control button "Skip";
• a special screen section where the user name, records of the current session & the number of errors in a session, are logged.

Here are the general rules for all quizzes:

• All quizzes are organized in sessions.
• Only a session with 10 quizzes is evaluated and is counted as a completed one. If a session is interrupted before a set of 10 quizzes is finished, the results of this session are not copied to the Clipboard.
• The results of each session are documented and accompanied by an evaluation that includes the score and elapsed time.
• During a session, a user can start a new quiz by pressing the button “Skip”.
• When a user is done with 10 quizzes, the message “This session is done. All records were copied to the clipboard“ appears on the screen. To start a new session, a user should:
  - tap the button “Next Session”;
  - confirm the user name or enter another name.
• When a session is completed:
    - the session results are copied to the Clipboard,
    - the log on the screen is cleared.
• A user can paste the Clipboard content into Apple applications like Mail or Notes for later analysis.
• To send the session results by email, a user should:
    - open the Mail application and start a new email;
    - tap the content area until menu options will appear and select the item “Paste”.
• To save the session results with Notes, a user should
    - open Notes & start a new note;
    - tap the content area until menu options will appear and select the item “Paste”.
