Lesson 2-1: Units of Area

Lesson 2-2: Area of Any Right Triangle

Lesson 2-3: Area of any Parallelogram

NOTE: Here the BASE is "length" and the HEIGHT is "width." Watch and see how the area of a parallelogram is the same as the area of its related rectangle.

Lesson 2-4: Area of any Triangle

Lesson 2-5: Select the Needed Measurements

Lesson 2-6: Area of any Trapezoid

Lesson 2-7: Area of a Complex Figure

Lesson 2-8: Area of any Regular Polygon

Check out Journal pp. 67-68 and the first part of this video to review what we did in class today. Don't sign

up for a subscription at this site. The first part of the video should be enough. If the video is "unavailable," then type

"area of regular polygons" in the search box and it should pop up.
