Solve Real World Problems by Finding the Area of a Rectangle

This Solve Real World Problems by Finding the Area of a Rectangle video also includes:

Young mathematicians learn to apply their understanding of area in real-world contexts with the final video of this series. Multiple examples are presented that demonstrate different situations that involve calculating the area of a rectangle. Consider pausing the video after each problem is introduced, allowing learners a chance to solve them on their own before viewing the solutions. An excellent conclusion to a lesson series on area and a great opportunity to teach learners how to draw pictures as a problem solving strategy.
