Have you ever wondered exactly how much land and space are included in a national park? In this paper, we will explore the vastness of a fictitious Park and calculate its total area.
1. Create a fictitious Park, determine a scale that can be used to perform
calculations using a practical unit of measurement.
2. Develop a strategy that students can use to find the area of the Park.
3. Demonstrate the use of the strategy by solving for the area of the fictitious park.
