Geometry: Area


Geometry (6.G)

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.

This tutorial is for sixth grade students who are learning about area, surface area, and volume.  But in this tutorial we are going to focus on finding the Area only.
