# Area and perimeter worksheets (rectangles and squares)

Find an unlimited supply of free worksheets for practicing the area and/or perimeter of rectangles & squares for grades 3-5. The worksheets are very varied, and include:

• problems for the area & perimeter of rectangles and squares, with grid images or normal images
• word problems, including some that ask for a missing length of side when the area or perimeter is given
• problems with complex rectangular shapes
• write an expression for two-part rectangular areas (Common Core Standard 3.MD.7.c for 3rd grade).

## Basic instructions for the worksheets

Each worksheet is randomly generated and thus unique. The answer key is automatically generated and is placed on the second page of the file.

You can generate the worksheets either in html or PDF format — both are easy to print. To get the PDF worksheet, simply push the button titled "Create PDF" or "Make PDF worksheet". To get the worksheet in html format, push the button "View in browser" or "Make html worksheet". This has the advantage that you can save the worksheet directly from your browser (choose File → Save) and then edit it in Word or other word processing program.

Sometimes the generated worksheet is not exactly what you want. Just try again! To get a different worksheet using the same options:

• PDF format: come back to this page and push the button again.
