This Math Match-Up contains two separate challenges. Challenge one tasks participants to evaluate for the area of parallelograms with whole number dimensions.

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!!
