Product Description
Trying to figure out how to get students to derive area formulas so they know and understand how to use them? This activity does just that! Through the use of tangrams, students are better able to understand the relationship between the area formulas of parallelograms and triangles. Not only do students get to play with the tangram pieces to make the connection and derive the formulas, but they are also able to begin thinking about composite figures as they find the areas of pictures made of the 7 tangram pieces!
