Learning Goals

  • Comprehend the terms “base” and “height” to refer to one side of a parallelogram and the perpendicular distance between that side and the opposite side.
  • Generalize  a process for finding the area of a parallelogram, using the length of a base and the corresponding height.

Can you apply your process to any quadraleteral?
