Measure Area by Counting
If each square has sides measuring two centimeters, what is the area of this shape? Learners find area in five shapes segmented into squares with given sides. Encourage them to use square units in their answers. Next, they do the opposite: given a square and its area, they are asked to determine the measurements of each small square unit within it.

Exploring the Pythagorean Theorem
Eighth graders explore the Pythagorean Theorem. They draw and construct non-congruent squares to determine their area. They construct triangles and determine the area and compare the sizes of both the squares and triangles. They record the relationship between the areas of the squares and construct two differnt right-angled triangles.

Constructing a square inscribed in a circle
Here is an activity that focuses on the actual construction of the square inscribed in a circle. The lesson plan allows for the use of dot paper or graph paper with straight edges and protractors, or dynamic geometry software programs. After construction, learners verify that the figure is a square.

Same Base and Height, Variation 1
Four triangles are depicted for learners to construct on a geoboard. They compute and compare the areas, and so meet one of the sixth grade Common Core standards for geometry. Note that the set of triangles does not include a right triangle, so to completely fulfill requirements, more resources are needed.
