Find the Area: Compound Shapes
It's not every day that you see shapes like these! Your child is likely overwhelmed by the task of finding these complex areas, but they're not as difficult as they may seem. These compound shapes are actually made up of individual shapes that are probably already quite familiar to her. All she needs to do is separate them, find the shapes' individual areas, and then add the areas together. She'll boost her knowledge of arithmetic, as well as her understanding of basic geometry!
