A fun twist on a practice worksheet! Students solve a problem involving area of a parallelogram. The solution leads them to the next problem, which lead them to the next, until they complete the worksheet!
The 12 problems are a mix of calculating area of rectangles and parallelograms (some involving fractional lengths) and calculating the base or height when given the area.
The 12th problem is a challenge problem in which students are given a side length and the perimeter of a rectangle and have to calculate the area.
Students are motivated by the self-checking nature of this activity. They are also more willing to seek help if they can't find the solution and move on to the next problem!
Each problem has enough space for students to write the formula and show work.
