Complete the quick maths starter.
DO NOT SPEND MORE THAN 10 MINUTES ON THIS ACTIVITY
WALT find the area of triangles
(base x height) ÷ 2
You can also write the formula as:
½ x base x height
They both give you the exact same answer since multiplying by a half is the same as dividing by 2.
If you find this formula difficult, ½ x base x height
Then try it this way round (base x height) ÷ 2
Some people find it easier!
