Find the AREA of a PARALLELOGRAM!!
This SMARTboard Notebook includes 10 problems using WHOLE NUMBERS. It is bright, interactive, and includes an answer key!
The parallelograms are NOT all lying flat, which helps students focus on truly understanding finding the BASE & HEIGHT. There is also a page which allows students to understand how a parallelogram is connected to a rectangle and why the formula works! This presentation allows you to help your students squash typical misconceptions.
My suggested uses are:
• For modeling & teaching the skill for the first time.
• For guided practice.
• As a Formative Assessment.
• Also you can: print out slides for students to use as a worksheet. For example, you can print out one problem as a half-sheet and use as a quick Formative Assessment (exit slip).
• Also you can: print out slides on a whole sheet and use at Math Centers.
Along with my other presentations, you will be able to differentiate easily.
Enjoy! I hope you enjoy the ease of an-already-made-product, and it helps your students be confident in this skill!
