Area of 2D Shapes Worksheet
This worksheet covers the area of different 2D shapes, including squares, rectangles, triangles, and parallelograms. It helps students understand and apply the formulas for calculating the area of these shapes.
Instructions:
 Calculate the area of each 2D shape.
 Show your work by writing the formula used and the values substituted.
 Write the final answer in the space provided.
Shapes and Formulas:
Square:
 Formula: Area = side × side
 Example: If the side of a square is 5 cm, then its area is 5 cm × 5 cm = 25 cm²
Rectangle:
 Formula: Area = length × width
 Example: If the length of a rectangle is 8 cm and the width is 4 cm, then its area is 8 cm × 4 cm = 32 cm²
Triangle:
 Formula: Area = (1/2) × base × height
 Example: If the base of a triangle is 6 cm and the height is 4 cm, then its area is (1/2) × 6 cm × 4 cm = 12 cm²
Parallelogram:
 Formula: Area = base × height
 Example: If the base of a parallelogram is 7 cm and the height is 5 cm, then its area is 7 cm × 5 cm = 35 cm²
