In spreadsheet programs, multiplication and division symbols are shown as an asterisk (*) and forward slash (/) instead of the standard multiplication and division symbols that students might be used to seeing. You might want to ensure that students know what an asterisk and forward slash look like. You also might want to make sure that students know where to find the asterisk and forward slash symbols on a keyboard.
In this lesson, students find the area of enclosures. Students use the area information to find out how much space different types of bears need for a bear exhibit at a zoo. You might want to remind students that the formula used to calculate an area is area=height*width.
The data used in this lesson involves bears. Different types of bears require different areas of space for optimal living conditions. The required area for each type of bear is generally based on the bears' full-grown size.
