This product consists of (8.5x11-size) design posters of the area of a rectangle formula, area of a triangle formula, area of a parallelogram and plain posters for each of the formulas. The design posters were created to be colored, and the plain posters are available if a student chooses to create their own design.By coloring or drawing these posters, the student will better memorize/learn the formulas.
This 4 page lesson includes a page that details the formulas for finding the area of a square, rectangle, triangle, parallelogram and trapezoid. The second and third pages are practice problems and the answer keys are included.
Here are two different versions of a game where students roll dice to create rectangles and then find the area. In one version students count square units. In the second version they apply the formula for area.
