This worksheet is centered around the theme of entrepreneurship and involves a series of geometry word problems that relate to business activities. It includes problems that require calculating the area of a business card, the area of banners for trade shows, the volume of cylindrical containers for products, and the circumference of a logo. Students are challenged to apply geometric concepts to entrepreneurial scenarios, such as setting up a food stall, designing shelf space, creating packaging for products, and decorating a storefront.
The worksheet is designed to teach students how to apply geometry in practical business-related contexts. It focuses on calculating area, volume, and perimeter using different shapes such as rectangles, cylinders, and hexagons, which are relevant to product design, marketing, and store layout. By solving these problems, students reinforce their understanding of geometric calculations while gaining insight into how these skills are useful in entrepreneurship. The worksheet also aims to enhance problem-solving abilities and encourage the application of math in the innovative field of business creation.
