In class, we learned how to find the area of triangles by cutting, arranging, calculating, pasting and measuring!

The formula for finding the area of a triangle is...

A = b X h / 2 (base times height divided by two)

Check out this site, Mr. Glosser's Math Goodies, to learn a bit more about finding the area of a triangle. It even has some practice examples down on the bottom of the page.

Tonight's homework is the triangle worksheet.

On the

*"Practice Worksheet"*side, please skip numbers 4, 5, 6, 13, 14, & 15.

On the 4-5 side, please skip numbers 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 16, 17, & 18.

AND please don't forget that you should

**use a calculator**!!!

Good luck and have fun with this! The posters from class should be up this afternoon and I will post some of the pictures from class on the blog tonight!
