Please use this module with care. Do not put unnecessary marks on any part of this SLM. Use a separate sheet of paper in answering the exercises and tests. And read the instructions carefully before performing each task.
In the previous module, you learned about the difference between perimeter and area. Now, you will learn about square units. Square units like cm2, dm2, m2, in2 and ft2, which are read as square centimeters or centimeter square, square decimeters or decimeter square, and so on, are units of areas. Some of these units may be smaller or bigger than the others. You use bigger units to measure big areas and smaller units for small areas.
This module will also help you understand how area measures may be converted from one unit to another, in particular, measures in square centimeters to square meters, and vice versa. We know that you will not only find the lesson in this module useful but fun as well.
