Summary of the Math: Area of Parallelograms and Trapezoids

  • Write a summary of what you learned about the area of parallelograms and trapezoids.

Hint:

Check your summary:

  • Do you provide the area formulas for a parallelogram and a trapezoid with explanations of what each variable represents?
  • Area of a parallelogram = bh
  • Area of a parallelogram = h(b1+b2)2
  • Do you include sketches or written descriptions showing how you found the formulas?
