Students use a Voyage 200 graphing calculator to find the area of given regular polygons. In this Geometry lesson, students follow specific directions to draw specified polygons and compute the area and perimeter of each. Students compare the number of triangles in each shape to determine a formula for computing area and perimeter without a calculator.

The new resource preview feature is awesome! It is extremely easy to both find materials and align them with the Common Core Standards. I use those a lot since they are not state-specific, and my lessons must meet the needs of students from different states as well as other countries. You will help me save a lot of planning time!
