This matching activity practices the skills related to finding the area of parallelograms. Using a variety of parallelogram illustrations, students must apply both their working knowledge of shape notation and elements of a parallelogram in order to determine each shapes correct area. This Math Match-Up contains two separate challenges. Challenge one tasks participants to evaluate for the area of parallelograms with whole number dimensions. The second challenge requires finding the area of parallelograms with decimal dimensions.

Math Match-Up Challenges are perfect skill reinforcement and practice activities that can be implemented in a variety of capacities. Partner or small group activity. Independent practice or center activity. A favorite application is offering this activity as a whole class game. Have students in pairs/or groups of three. Each group has paper copies of both challenges, or ideally, laminated together, challenge one and challenge two back to back, or inside a laminated envelope. One side at a time, students use their skills to complete each task to criteria established by the teacher. Students love these as a game!!

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Evaluate expressions at specific values of their variables. Include expressions that arise from formulas used in real-world problems. Perform arithmetic operations, including those involving whole-number exponents, in the conventional order when there are no parentheses to specify a particular order (Order of Operations). For example, use the formulas V = s³ and A = 6 s² to find the volume and surface area of a cube with sides of length s = 1/2.
Understand that attributes belonging to a category of two-dimensional figures also belong to all subcategories of that category. For example, all rectangles have four right angles and squares are rectangles, so all squares have four right angles.
