"Area" and "Perimeter" are both vocabulary words associated with 2-D shapes, but what's the difference between the two? Do shapes with the same area have the same perimeter automatically? How is area related to perimeter, and what are some examples in real life where we care about how much area a shape has versus how long the shape's perimeter is? Come and find out the answers to all of those questions in this video!
