Episode 105: Sensible Flats

Has Hacker claimed more land in Sensible Flats than he’s allowed? The kids use a special way to measure area to find out.

For Real segment: Bianca measures the floor area with sleeping bags to find out how many friends she can invite to sleepover.

Learning Goals

To find the area of an object, your child can count how many squares fit on it. But there’s an easier way! Measure an object’s dimensions, and she can use mathematics to calculate its area.
