Area 5 is a resource developed by the PDST Primary Numeracy Team and Dr Seán Delaney, Marino Institute of Education, focused on the strand unit Area for 5th class. It is designed as a ‘replacement unit’ for traditional textbooks and offers a problem-solving and enquiry-based approach to the teaching of the strand unit.
