This week I introduced students a fun new iPad app as part of our measuring unit. The app is called GeoMeasure. It allows users to measure distances and areas in Google Maps. You can also measure perimeter as well as measure in different units (e.g. kilometres and metres).

We found out using the GeoMeasure app that the perimeter of our school property is about 733 metres.

We discovered that the Rogers Centre, in Toronto, has almost the exact same perimeter as our school property!
