L.O Area of a Triangle

Well done to the children who did the White Rose Maths on Area and Perimeter yesterday. There was some good reasoning questions for you to answers.

Today we are continuing with area, but we are looking at the area of a triangle.

There are many ways of explaining how to find the area of a triangle. If you look at the blue triangle below you will see it covers half of the rectangle so to find the area, we can calculate the area of the rectangle and divide by 2.

The area of any triangle can be calculated by the formula:

Base x Height) ÷ 2

Another way of looking at it is: 

½ the Base x the Height.


 he area of this triangle is (Base x Height) ÷ 2  (4 x 2) ÷ 2 = 4cm²

                                       or ½ the Base x the Height.  2 x 2 = 4cm²


IMPORTANT: The height has always got to be the vertical height from the base to the tallest point on the triangle. The base and the height you use must be at right angles.

This is called the perpendicular height.

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