L.O Area of a Parallelogram

The last lesson of White Rose Maths is on finding the Area of a Parallelogram. A Parallelogram is 4-sided 2D shape. The opposite sides are parallel.

A rectangle and a square are classed as special parallelograms because their opposite sides are parallel. They are special because their angles are all equal in size.

Parallelograms do not have to have 4 equal angles. They usually look like the shape below.



The formula for the area of a parallelogram is:

length of the base x the perpendicular height. (That’s the vertical height from the base. Look at the arrows on the diagram.)

Click on video below. Listen very carefully to the White Rose teacher who will go through examples with you and then complete the pdf worksheet attached. Once you have finished look at the answers and mark your work.

Send your work/score in the normal way through the BLOG or EMAIL.
