In this chapter you will learn about the special properties of quadrilaterals as well as find their perimeters and areas. You will explore the relationships of the sides and diagonals of a parallelogram, kite, trapezoid, rectangle, and rhombus. Chapter 6 – Quadrilaterals
6.2 –AREA OF A PARALLELOGRAM A parallelogram: a four-sided shape with two pairs of parallel sides. How can you find the area of a parallelogram? Consider this question as you answer the questions below.
a. Keesha thinks that the rectangle and parallelograms below have the same area. Her teammate Saundra disagrees. Who is correct? Justify your conclusion.
6.3 – AREA OF PARALLELOGRAMS, CONT. Several more parallelograms are shown below. In each case, find a related rectangle for which you know both the base and height. Rotating your packet might help. Use what you know about rectangles to find the area of each parallelogram.
