8.G.7 The task challenges a student to demonstrate understanding of the concepts of area  and perimeter of a complex figure. A student must understand the difference between  area and perimeter.  A student must make sense of the relationship between squares  and triangles to determine the area of this complex shape.  A student must make  sense of the Pythagorean Theorem to find the distance of the side of right triangles in  the complex figure in order to determine the perimeter of the complex shape.  Copyright © 2009 by Mathematics Assessment Resource Service.

8, 2007: Rugs

by Patricia Finck

8.G.7 The task challenges a student to demonstrate understanding of the concepts of  irrational numbers, the Pythagorean Theorem and use it to calculate  perimeter/circumference.  A student must understand how to calculate the perimeter/circumference of different figures including rectangles, triangles and circles.   A student must be able to make use of common irrational numbers such as the square  root of 2 and pi.  A student must approximate irrational numbers with a rational number  to determine an approximate perimeter of a geometric shape.  A student must apply  the Pythagorean Theorem to calculate the side of a triangle.
