Finding the Area of a Rectangle

• Objectives
• To calculate areas of rectangles
• To calculate areas of polygons made of rectangles

3
Area is the measure of how much space a shape
takes up. We measure it in squares such as
square centimetres or metres etc.
This rectangle takes up 28 squares. It has an
area of 28 square centimetres 28 cm2

Split more complicated shapes into rectangles and
find the area of each rectangle then add them
together.
