In this activity students arrange a set number of tiles into as many different rectangles as possible, recording the number in the length and width. Directions are very clear and a student recording sheet is provided.  The lesson can easily be used in a classroom setting.  Overall, this is an easy to use activity to teach students how to partition rectangles.
