Young scholars estimate the area of states using the formulas for the areas of rectangles, squares, and triangles. In this geometric shapes lesson plan, students divide irregular shaped states into shapes. They use the formulas for areas of geometric shapes to estimate the area of the state.
In this cosmic rays and solar cells learning exercise, students read about how cosmic rays damage the electrical output of solar cells over time on satellites. Students use a graph of the solar power output compared to the year for the SOHO satellite and answer 4 questions about its power changes over time.
Students investigate triangles and their relationship to each other. In this geometry instructional activity, students solve right triangles using the properties of the Pythagorean Theorem. They differentiate between right, acute, straight and oblique triangles.
Students use a dot table to draw squares and then describe the diagonals using the square root formula. In this square root lesson plan, students use the Pythagorean Theorem to check their answers.
Tenth graders investigate the parts of the pythagorean theorem. In this geometry lesson, 10th graders practice the pythagorean theorem by identifying and solving sides of a right triangles. This assignment is interactive and requires the internet.
Fourth graders will be able to use a grid to calculate the perimeter and area of a square or rectangle and use measuring tools to measure and calculate the perimeter and area of a rectangle or square.
Students solve a story problem about how many trees can be planted in a given area. Using a map, they gather information about the size of the area and the dimensions of an acre. They use a specific equation to determine the area of irregular polygons.
Second graders participate in a series of hands-on, online and multimedia activities that examine the concept of area. After a brief introduction of area, 2nd graders view clips from the animated series Math Monsters and discuss the purpose of area and how it is used in the real world.
Students explore the concept of triangles. In this triangle activity, students determine whether a triangle is acute, right, or obtuse using the Pythagorean theorem. Students derive the law of cosines from the Pythagorean theorem.
Seventh graders practice finding the area and perimeter of polygons. In this polygon area lesson plan, 7th graders brainstorm shapes and take a walk to locate shapes. Students record properties of shapes and use various shapes to make a polygon. Students practice finding formulas for the area of a square, rectangle, triangle, parallelogram, and trapezoid. Students complete to problems by maximizing area with a given perimeter.
In this squares and square roots learning exercise, students practice finding the squares of numbers and the square roots of numbers given word problems.
Seventh graders explore area and perimeter, using tangram pieces. They discover the area and perimeter of rectangles and squares. After experimentation, 7th graders write a rule for finding the perimeter and area of squares and rectangles.
In this middle school geometry instructional activity, students determine the area of a rectangle.  The instructional activity provides an explanations and example.  The one page instructional activity contains three problems.  Solutions are provided. 
In this algebra worksheet, 11th graders perform operations with real numbers. They simplify roots and rationalize the denominators by factoring. They calculate the absolute values of the roots. There are 11 questions.
Geometers calculate the area of plane surfaces using the formulas for the area of a square, rectangle, and triangle. They develop the formula for calculating the total surface area of two geometric solids: the cube and rectangular prism.
Students examine finding the sum of an infinite series as the limit of partial sums. Through hands-on activities, students create their own sequence by finding the area of a square and then cutting it in half-sized pieces. They write out the series of areas to discover a pattern. Assuming the pattern were indefinite, students find the sum.
In this finding the area worksheet, students solve 6 problems in which the area of a square or rectangle is calculated. The instructions and examples provides hints and formulas.
In this finding area worksheet, students solve 11 problems in which the area of figure is calculated in square units. Students also draw a figure on grid paper with an area of 8 square units.
Young scholars explore the concept of estimating square and cube roots.  In this estimating square and cube roots activity, students are given the area of a square object and must determine the sides.  Young scholars solve word problems involving driving distances and the Pythagorean theorem.  Students find the square and cube roots of numbers.
Math scholars explore the concept of area. In this area lesson plan, learners find the area of cardboard squares and circles that they have created. They use their cardboard constructions to find midpoint, area of sectors, arc length and other measurable attributes of a circle.
