# Perimeter and Area of Polygonal Regions in the Cartesian Plane

##### This Perimeter and Area of Polygonal Regions in the Cartesian Plane lesson plan also includes:

How many sides does that polygon have? Building directly from lesson number eight in this series, learners now find the area and perimeter of any polygon on the coordinate plane. They decompose the polygons into triangles and use Green's Theorem to find the area. They use the distance formulas to determine the perimeter. There are 15 lessons in this series.
