1.
Learning Target:Students will learn how to calculate the area of parallelograms. <br />
2.
Do you know the qualifications needed for a figure to be classified as a rectangle?<br />
3.
Do you know the qualifications needed for a figure to be classified as a rectangle?A: Two sets of parallel lines and 4 right angles <br />
4.
What is the difference between a rectangle and a parallelogram?<br />
5.
What is the difference between a rectangle and a parallelogram?A: A parallelogram still has two set of parallel sides but does not have 4 right angles.<br />
6.
Now that you know this about parallelograms how will it affect us when trying to find the area of parallelograms?<br />
7.
Now that you know this about parallelograms how will it affect us when trying to find the area of parallelograms?A: We will not be able to find the height of the parallelogram from it’s side. <br />
9.
Vocabulary:Base of a parallelogram: length of one side of the parallelogram.Height of a parallelogram: is the distance from the base to the opposite side of the parallelogram. The height is perpendicular to the base. Perpendicular: means the two lines meet at a right angle.<br />
10.
Area of a Parallelogram:Words:Area = base times heightFormula:A = bh<br />
11.
Find the area of a parallelogram with a height of 20 m and base of 25 m.<br />
12.
Find the area of a parallelogram with a height of 20 m and base of 25 m.20 x 25 = 500 m2<br />
13.
Explain how you can find the base of a parallelogram if you know the height and the area.<br />
14.
The area of a parallelogram is 84 square feet and the height is 12 feet. What is the base?<br />
15.
The area of a parallelogram is 84 square feet and the height is 12 feet. What is the base?A= bh84 = b(12)84/12 = b7 = b Base is 7 ft long.<br />
16.
Can you calculate the area of parallelograms?<br />
