Fantastic lesson on finding the area of regular polygons! I like how you usd a real world opportunity to apply the skill. Students appreciate knowing why certain math skills are necessary and this lesson fully covers that.  The background knowledge and required tech skills are included which helps the teacher understand what is going to be required if this lesson is going to be successful.  I will definitely share this with colleagues.


Technical Remarks:

Great integration of technology to differentiate in the lesson.  I like the way you are planning to use the geometry software to allow students to test their findings.

I like that students are asked to work collaboratively in groups and also use the Geometry software as well.  Students will be able to relate to the concept as they will relate to the Pentagon building.
