Math activities with Walls.

Walls can be good math tools.

  • Estimate how big the walls are in the room around you.  Get a measuring tape and check to see if you were correct.
    • How long would all the wall around you be if they were one long wall? (Addition)
    • What is the difference between two different walls? (Subtraction)
    • Can you design what you want on your wall?
  • Make a floor-plan drawing of your room using graph paper and your wall measurements.  Can you make a floor-plan for the whole house?  What is the total square footage?
    • Can you design your own house floor-plans?
What math can you do with the walls around you?
