Area Invasion is a board game that helps students practice finding the area of rectangles, parallelograms, triangles, trapezoids, and circles. Students must find the area of different shapes to help them move around the game board. Landing on a "Circle Slide" spot gives students a chance to move even more quickly through the board by finding the area of a circle!

Problem difficulty for Area Invasion varies The difficulty of the problem is correlated to how many spaces they get to move if it is answered correctly.
