WALT find the area of irregular shapes (counting squares)

 

What is area?

 

Area means how much space a flat shape takes up. This is the space inside a shape.

 

Area is measured in square units:

 

 

  • Square centimetres (cm²) are good for measuring a small area - like a picture or a model.

 

  • Square metres (m²) are good for measuring bigger areas - like a wall or a playground.

 

Some times we can count solve the area of an irregular shape by counting the amount of squares in a shape. 

 

   

 

 

These are SAT's questions.  

 

What is the area of these irregular shapes? 

 

Count the squares on the inside of the shape.
