Our focus of study today was calculating the area of squares & rectangles. We worked at least the first three problems on each worksheet together as a group to ensure student understanding so everyone should have examples to follow! The formula for both figures is the same:

Area = length x width

(A = l x w)

Students need to be mindful of answering area questions in units squared!
