6.1.4 Digital Applet: Area of a Parallelogram


This is an assignable version of the digital applet that goes with Grade 6, Unit 1, Lesson 4: Parallelograms. 

Assign this activity to students so that they can experiment with the given polygons to find the area of the parallelograms. For the second question, students are given the same starting parallelogram as in the first question. They will need to move the vertices to change it into a different parallelogram before finding its area.
