6.1.6 Digital Applet: More Areas of Parallelograms

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


This activity allows students to practice finding and reasoning about the area of various parallelograms. Students need to make sense of the measurements and relationships in the given figures, identify an appropriate pair of base-height measurements to use, and recognize that two parallelograms with the same base-height measurements (or with different base-height measurements but the same product) have the same area.
