PLEASE NOTE: When you open this product after purchasing, there looks like overlapping of text. However, if you play through the animations, you will see that the text appears and disappears to help the students understand the process. Thanks you.
Students learn how to find the area of irregular shapes (3.MD.7) step-by-step. The power point is made to teach each and every step to the students and then practice with several examples.
Students will use length x width and order of operations to solve these common core problems.
Equations look like this: (LxW) + (LxW) = ___ square units
Power Point includes:
* Step-by-step directions to solve problems
* Review of missing sides of irregular shapes
* How to solve equations with parentheses
* Color coded sections to visually see how to split an irregular shape into two separate shapes.
Bring your kids down to the carpet with individual white boards (or keep them at their seats) and have them work out the examples with you as you go.
You could also use the first slide as a poster for the classroom!
