 Emma's Blog :) This blog is for Miss Jovanovich's algebra and geometry classes to share ideas, ask questions, and reflect on what skills and topics we are studying. If we are lucky, we might even get a chance to connect with other students studying the same stuff.

Weekly Blog 23- Areas Hello fellow bloggers!

This week we learned all about areas in geometry class. In fact, we just took a test on them. Very early on we learn the basic ones: rectangle, square, triangle. However, there are many more formulas to finding areas that I have just learned!
Here's a list:

Rectangle/Square/Parallelogram: A=Base x Height
Trapezoid: A= 1/2Height x Base 1 + Base 2
Rhombus/Kite: A= 1/2 Diagonal 1 x Diagonal 2
Regular Polygon: A= 1/2 Apothem x Perimeter

My favorite area to find is the rhombus. This is because I never knew how to do it before just a couple days ago. I find it fascinating to learn new things! Also, there is sometimes algebra involved, which I really enjoy!
