6.G.A.1 Find the area of right triangles, other triangles, special quadrilaterals, and polygons by composing into rectangles or decomposing into triangles and other shapes; apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems. Finding the area of a rectangle

I.G.I

Vocabulary Area – finding how many squares it takes to cover the surface of a figure Labeled “units squared” or “u ²”

Finding the area of a rectangle How many squares will it take to cover a rectangle with side lengths 10 by 5 units. What is the area?

Find the area How many squares will it take to cover a rectangle that has side lengths of 6 by 2 units? What is the area? 2 6 2 6

Find the area How many squares will it take to cover a rectangle with side lengths 1 by 10 units? What is the area?

Find the area Find the area of the square. Find the area of the rectangle. A = 5 x 5 = 25 u² A = 2 x 8 = 16 u²

A = length(width) A = lw A = side(side) A = s 2 The Area (A) of a rectangle is found by using the formula: The Area (A) of a square is found by using the formula:

What is the Area (A) of the figure? 13 ft 7 ft

Find the area of the figure below. 8
