Find the Area of a Polygon Using Multiplication

This Find the Area of a Polygon Using Multiplication video also includes:

Use prior experience with the array model of multiplication to teach young mathematicians how to find the area of rectangles in the first video of this four-part series. Multiple examples are presented that clearly demonstrate this process using visual models. A separate Guided Practice video offers an opportunity for young learners to demonstrate their understanding. Implement this resource to supplement whole-group instruction or assign as an independent learning activity to complement a lesson on area.
