Course 2 AF 3.1 Use variables in expressions describing geometric quantities. -Objective :Students will use variables in expressions describing geometric quantities for Areas of triangles and trapezoids by using equation formulas and scoring an 80% proficiency on an exit slip.

Area of Triangles and Trapezoids
Course 2 Area of Triangles and Trapezoids A diagonal of a parallelogram divides the parallelogram into two congruent triangles. So the area of each triangle is half the area of the parallelogram. Height Height Base Base The base of a triangle can be any side. The height of a triangle is the perpendicular distance from the base to the opposite vertex.

Area of Triangles and Trapezoids
Course 2 Area of Triangles and Trapezoids A parallelogram can be divided into two congruent trapezoids. The area of each trapezoid is one-half the area of the parallelogram. 1 2 Area of a trapezoid = (base of parallelogram)(height).

Area of Triangles and Trapezoids
Course 2 Area of Triangles and Trapezoids The two parallel sides of a trapezoid are its bases. If we call the longer side b1 and the shorter side b2, then the base of the parallelogram is b1 + b2. 1 2 Area of a trapezoid = (base 1 + base 2)(height).

Area of Triangles and Trapezoids
Course 2 Area of Triangles and Trapezoids AREA OF A TRAPEZOID b2 The area of a trapezoid is half its height multiplied by the sum of its two bases. 1 2 A = h(b1 + b2) h b1
