Writing Task 6.G.1 ~ Area of a Hexagon

The exercise asks geometers to determine the area of a hexagon. Ideally, they would do so by decomposing it into triangles, finding the area of one triangle, and then multiplying it appropriately. In this way, they completely fulfill the requirements of CCSS.Math.Content.6.G.1. Two copies of the exact same problem are printed on this page so that you can cut it in half. Use the problem as an assessment or warm-up exercise.
