This differentiated worksheet on the area of triangles and quadrilaterals
includes 3 tiers:
Tier 1 - Fluency Problems (Students are asked the base and height of each figure and are asked to solve for the area using the correct formula).
Tier 2 - Advanced Fluency (Students have to identify the base and height of each figure from a picture of the shape and are then asked to solve for the area using the correct formula).
Tier 3 - Application & Critical Thinking (Students are asked to solve a word problem involving area. Some problems involve thinking outside the box or analyzing another's work).
My students love how the problems become more challenging as they move through the worksheet and they are always super excited when they get to tier 3.
Enjoy! I would love comments/suggestions.
