Area of Parallelograms

Today we explored parallelograms and found that they relate to rectangles and we find area the same way!  Area = base x height

Tonight's homework:  You may use a calculator and need to show your work!

They use big numbers in the video below, but the concepts are the same!

-Miss K  :)


Sorry, this didn't post on Wednesday...

Today we worked on finding the area of Triangles.  We saw that one triangle is half of a rectangle, so we take our formula for finding the area of a Rectangle, b x h, and divide it by 2 for a triangle.

Base x Height divided by 2
