Product Description
This activity asks the students to plot various ordered pairs on a coordinate plane and connect the points to make a polygon. Then they are expected to calculate the area and/or perimeter of each shape. The first worksheet has a square, two rectangles and a triangle. The triangle is starred to show higher level thinking. Each polygon is to be colored a different color. The second worksheet asks the students to plot the points of five polygons: a triangle, two rectangles and two composite figures. There is a "hint" to break down the composite figures into two smaller figures. Also, two of the polygons cross the y axis so this is a good time to introduce absolute value.
