Calculating the Area of a Pentagon

2.0 based on 2 ratings

Your child knows how to find the area of rectangles and triangles, but how do you find the area of a pentagon? Breaking a pentagon down into other shapes first makes calculating its area much easier. In this worksheet, your child will use a ruler to divide each pentagon into other shapes like rectangles and triangles, then write the names of the shapes she's created on the lines. Finally, she'll use what she's learned to find the area of the final pentagon using the measurements given.
