- calculate the area/perimeter of a figure given its dimensions

- calculate the dimensions/perimeter of a figure given its area

- describe the effect of changes to the dimensions on the area/perimeter of a figure

- use geometric principles to calculate probabilities

- calculate/estimate the area of irregular figures ...

... if the figure lies on a grid, consider applying Pick's Formula or some related method

... if the figure does NOT lie on a grid, consider applying the Area Addition Postulate
