# Maths Unit: Perimeter

Description

This perimeter unit is great for finding, learning and practising perimeter. The unit provides a reference card with the perimeter formula as well as examples to practise the skill. It also provides examples of when we may see perimeter in real life. There are numerous worksheets to practise finding the perimeter and an assessment to test your knowledge and understand at the  completion of the unit.
