How much space does that rectangle truly take up? Help your child learn the secret to figuring out the area of a rectangle as part of their journey to math mastery. To learn the area of a rectangle, kids must first learn the basic formula: height times width. From there, kids can multiply centimeters, inches, feet and a lot more! We have lots of options for kids to practice with: if they learn better by writing things out, print out a worksheet or a workbook. If they're always connected, a Brainzy game or online exercises might help this lesson stick. And if you're a teacher, we have lesson plans written just for you! Once the area of a rectangle is figured out, you can have them move on to the area of a triangle, or try perimeter next. No matter what you need, you can be sure we've got it in our library of math resources.
