It allows students to discover the relationship between the area of rectangles and parallelograms in a three part math lesson format. After students have discovered how to find the area of parallelograms, they are given an opportunity to practise this before a formative assessment question (from an old EQAO test) and a journal prompt that focuses on communication.
Pages marked with an "A" in a star are modified activities for those on IEPs below grade level.
