The purpose of this study was to increase the student's understanding of the measures of area and perimeter of polygons. The goal of the project was to create a supplemental geometry unit to develop the concept of the area and perimeter of a polygon without the use of formulas and numbers and to measure the effectiveness of this unit on student understanding. Two high school geometry classes with under 28 students each participated in this study.
