This handout has four types of problems on the first page: perimeter and area of a triangle, parallelogram, trapezoid, and circle. It's intended to practice/review using those formulas. There is space for students to show their work/steps. There are fractions/decimals in the problems, but nothing too difficult.
The second page has 3 irregular figures (composite figures) where students have to cut the shape into common shapes before they can find the area. The students see these problems as puzzles/challenges, and seem to like finding the area of them even more than more basic figures. There are answer sheets included. If you need this in Microsoft Word to make changes, email me.
Also, here is a link to a scaffolded note page for students to take notes on these same concepts. It's FREE!

Here is a link to an introductory worksheet on area of triangles and rectangles. Great for differentiation!
