This lesson unit is intended to help you assess how well students are able to:
- Analyse a realistic situation mathematically.
- Construct sight lines to decide which areas of a room are visible or hidden from a camera.
- Find and compare areas of triangles and quadrilaterals.
- Calculate and compare percentages and/or fractions of areas.
