Lesson Ideas
What are polygons anyway, and how can you find their areas? In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby will show you how to find the area of polygons, like triangles, trapezoids, and parallelograms. First, you’ll learn how to find the area of squares and rectangles. Then, you’ll discover a new twist to finding the area of other parallelograms and their altitudes. Tim will also walk you through some great examples of area problems and help you discover all of the formulas that make finding the area of different shapes easy. Who knew you could learn geometry without getting a headache?
