In this lesson, Professor Perez teaches his student, Charlie, how to find the perimeter of shapes. He starts by explaining that to find the perimeter, you need to add up all the side lengths of a shape. He then goes on to demonstrate how to find missing lengths by breaking down the horizontal and vertical lengths of a shape. The lesson concludes with a challenging example where the student needs to find the perimeter of a complex shape. Professor Perez encourages the student to practice and get better at finding perimeters.
