How do we find the area of different shapes?
Standard and Essential Question
 MCC6.G.1: Find the area of right triangles, other
triangles, special quadrilaterals, and polygons by
composing into rectangles and decomposing into
triangles and other shapes; apply these techniques in
the context of solving real-world and mathematical
problems.
How do I find the area of a square and rectangle
without a formula and decompose those to find the
area of a triangle?
area? (Brainstorm)
What are the important terms?
 Area: the number of square units it takes to
completely fill a shape or surface.
 Polygon: a two dimensional (2-D) figure made up of
line segments that are connected to form a closed
shape.
 Quadrilateral: a four sided polygon
 Vertex: the end point of two or more line segments
Unit Squares
 You can count unit squares to find the area of a figure.
Height (h)
(width)
Base (b)
(length)
Area= 9 square units
Base= 3 units
Height= 3 units
Area= 4.5 square units
Base= 3 units
Height= 3 units
Geoboard Squares
 Square: a quadrilateral that has 4 congruent sides and 4
right angles (90˚).
 Create a square that is 9 units long by 9 units wide.
 Copy that onto your dot paper!
 How many unit squares make up this quadrilateral?
 What is the area of the square?
 What is a “shortcut”/formula to find the area?
 Now put a diagonal to divide the square in half.
 When you divide the square in half what two
shapes do you get?
 What is the area of one of those shapes?
Area= 12 square units
Base= 4 units
Height= 3 units
Area= 6 square units
Base= 4 units
Height= 3 units
Geoboard Rectangles
 Rectangle: a 4-sided polygon with 4 angles that measure
90˚.
 Make a rectangle that is 8 units long and 7 units wide.
 Copy onto your dot paper!
 How many unit squares make up this shape?
 What is the area of the figure?
 What is a “shortcut”/formula to find the area?
 Now put a diagonal to divide the rectangle in half.
 When you divide the rectangle in half what two shapes
do you get?
 What is the area of one of those shapes?
So what’s the formula?

Stacy is planting a square garden in his backyard and
needs to know how much soil to buy. One bag of soil
covers 9 ft2.
If the height of the garden is 14 ft., what is the area of the
garden?
How many bags of soil does he need?
Standard and Essential Question
 MCC6.G.1: Find the area of right triangles, other
triangles, special quadrilaterals, and polygons by
composing into rectangles and decomposing into
triangles and other shapes; apply these techniques in
the context of solving real-world and mathematical
problems.
How are areas of geometric figures related to each
other?

What pattern do you notice?
Types of Triangles
 By Sides:
 Isosceles: a triangle that has 2 equal sides
 Scalene: a triangle that has no equal sides
 Equilateral: a triangle that has 3 equal sides
 By Angles:
 Right: a triangle with one right angle
 Acute: a triangle with only acute angles
 Obtuse: a triangle with one obtuse angle
Other Important Terms
 Height of a triangle: The perpendicular distance
from the base to the highest vertex.
It can be
measured outside
the triangle!
It can be
measured inside
the triangle!
Does the area change depending
on the type of triangle?
 Use the link below to determine whether the area
formula of a triangle changes depending on the
type of triangle.

How can I
determine the
area by only
counting unit
squares?
Let’s do some examples…
