Maths

​​​​​​It's all about AREA!

 

This week we would like you to have a go at looking at the area of shapes. 

 

Remember, AREA is the space INSIDE the shape.

 

We can use simple formulae to calculate the area. 

A = area

L = length

W = width

So the formulae would be L x W = A

 

Here are some examples to help you first...

Activity 1:

Let's have a look at TRIANGLES

 

We can also use simple formulae to find the area of a triangle. 

A = area 

B = base

H = height

 

To find the area of a triangle we use the formulae 

area = base x height ÷ 2

( A = B x H ÷ 2)
