CLASS: Basic 3
TOPIC: Area of Shapes
Area can be defined as the amount of two-dimensional space taken up by an object.
That is when we are talking about Area, we are talking about two sides of the shape or object.
That is why the unit of area is measured in
Square kilometres, square metres and
We can find the area of shapes by counting the number of square Centimetres the shapes have.
We can also calculate the area of shapes by calculating the product of the length and breadth
Examples: Find the area of the shapes in the diagram below:
We are going to do number 1 and number 2 together. The you are going to answer number 3 to 12 on your own.
- The number of squares is 12
Therefore Area = 12 centimetre squared
- The number squares is 30
Therefore Area = 30 centimetre squared
Answer number 3 to 12.
