Students will use cut-out shapes to illustrate decomposition of complex figures to find the area. This bundle includes my activities "Area of Complex Figures" and "Area of Complex Figures with Circles" to allow you to differentiate OR scaffold with your students. Answer keys, reference sheets, and enrichment options are included.

Know the formulas for the area and circumference of a circle and use them to solve problems; give an informal derivation of the relationship between the circumference and area of a circle.
Find the area of right triangles, other triangles, special quadrilaterals, and polygons by composing into rectangles or decomposing into triangles and other shapes; apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.
