Measurement Minimizing Perimeter Optimization

## Unit of Study:

Unit 2 - Measurement and Optimization

## MFM1P Specific Expectations

The math help provided for MFM1P Grade 9 Applied will address the following specific expectations:
MG1.03 - Solve problems that require maximizing the area of a rectangle for a fixed perimeter or minimizing the perimeter of a rectangle for a fixed area (Sample problem:You have 100 m of fence to enclose a rectangular area to be used for a snow sculpture competition. One side of the area is bounded by the school, so the fence is required for only three sides of the rectangle. Determine the dimensions of the maximum area that can be enclosed.).
