# Transcript: Shifting Shapes (Changing Shapes)

Text Reads, “TVO Kids Presents”.

Colourful animated numbers, zero to nine, jump in a line then form the title “Wacky Number Songs”.

An upbeat song plays: IT'S THE WACKY WACKY

NUMBER SONGS.

OH YEAH.

A caption reads “With Ava”. Ava holds a tangrams puzzle book. A television screen shows the different colourful tiles that make up the puzzle.

Ava says: IT'S MY BEST FRIEND'S BIRTHDAY

AND I'M GIVING HER THESE COOL

TILES.

YOU CAN REARRANGE THEM TO MAKE

ALL KINDS OF FUN SHAPES.

Ava opens the puzzle book. The different shapes form together into a large square. A puzzle of a cat appears on a page.

Ava says: AND HERE'S SOMETHING COOL.

TAKE THIS SQUARE, FOR EXAMPLE.

IF CUT IT IN TWO, THE AREA,

THAT'S THE SPACE INSIDE, STAYS

THE SAME BUT THE PERIMETER,

WHICH IS LIKE A FENCE AROUND THE

OUTSIDE, CHANGES.

The number 2 marks each side of a square. An 8 appears in the tops right corner of the television screen.

Ava says: SEE, THE SQUARE HAD A PERIMETER

OF 8, THE RECTANGLE HAS A

PERIMETER OF 10, BUT THE AREA OF

BOTH SHAPES HASN'T CHANGED.

LET'S COMPARE SHAPES WE CAN MAKE

WITH MY FRIEND'S TILES.

Ava smiles as she closes the puzzle book. A square made up of different colourful tiles has a Perimeter of 24. A triangle made with the same tiles has a perimeter of 22. A house shape made with the tiles has a perimeter of 30. A sailboat has a perimeter of 44.

Ava sings: LET'S COMPARE SHAPES, AND THE

AREA THEY TAKE.

THE PERIMETER CAN CHANGE.

BUT THE AREA STAYS THE SAME.

I BET THERE'S LOTS OF THINGS

THAT WE COULD MAKE.

SQUARES AND TRIANGLES, YOU CAN

SEE.

MAKE A VERY TALL TREE.

A very tall tree has a perimeter of 47.

Ava sings: AND WITH THE SAME SHAPES,

WHAT'S THAT CHIRP YOU HEARD?

I MADE A CUTE

LITTLE BIRD.

A little bird has a perimeter of 39. Ava flaps her arms.

Ava sings: THE DISTANCE AROUND THE SHAPES,

CHANGES AND GROWS.

BUT THE AREA

STAYS THE SAME, I KNOW.

A fox has a perimeter of 46.

PUT A FOX

IN A BOX.

WAIT A MINUTE, I CHANGED MY

MIND.

IT'S GONNA BE A DOG.

THAT WORKS.

A dog has a perimeter of 49.

Ava sings: LET'S COMPARE

SHAPES AND THE AREA THEY TAKE.

THE PERIMETER CAN CHANGE, BUT

THE AREA STAYS THE SAME.

LET'S COMPARE SHAPES, AND THE

AREA THEY TAKE.

THE PERIMETER CAN CHANGE, BUT

THE AREA STAYS THE SAME.

Ava sits on the back of a colourful flying bird with a Perimeter of 39. She shrugs.

The song ends

Ava speaks: SO, AS YOU CAN SEE THE AREA IS

THE SAME EVEN WHEN THE SHAPE

CHANGES.

AND NOW I MADE A CUTE LITTLE DOG

FOR MY FRIEND'S BIRTHDAY.

The shapes of the puzzle form a colourful dog shape on a piece of paper.

Ava speaks: WHO'S A GOOD BOY?

(DOG BARKING)

The animated numbers spell out “Wacky Number Songs”.
