Hint

Parallelogram

A = b*h

P = 2L + 2W

A = b*h

P = 2L + 2W

Welcome Team One!

Your task will be to derive the formulas for the perimeter and area of a parallelogram. Click on the link “Task” for specific instructions. Do not click on the other links until told to do so!!!

Good Luck Team!

Resources

Hint

Rectangular Solid

V = L*W*H

SA = 2LW +2HL +2WH

V = L*W*H

SA = 2LW +2HL +2WH

Welcome Team Two!

Your task will be to derive the formulas for the volume and surface area of a rectangular solid. Click on the link “Task” for specific instructions. Do not click on the other links until told to do so!!!

Good Luck Team!

Back

Trapezoid

P = B1 + B2 + S1 + S2

A = ½ (B1 + B2)*H

P = B1 + B2 + S1 + S2

A = ½ (B1 + B2)*H

Welcome Team Three!

Your task will be to derive the formulas for the perimeter and area of a trapezoid. Click on the link “Task” for specific instructions. Do not click on the other links until told to do so!!!

Good Luck Team!
