Upload your photo onto Seesaw. 4. Calculate the perimeter -Don't forget your units of measurement! 5. Calculate the area -Don't forget your units of measurement! 6. Show all your workings clearly. 7. Double check your calculations before you post. Top tip: When you measure your object, you can round it to the nearest whole number if you wish to make your calculations easier for you. For example, a book measures 19.8cm, I will round it up to 20cm.
