Our Relate Area to Multiplication and Addition lesson plan teaches students how addition and multiplication are used in relation to finding the area of a shape. During this lesson, students are asked to label rectangles that are broken into unit squares and then multiply the two sides together to find the area of the shape. Students are also asked to solve practice area problems on their own, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson material.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to relate area to the operations addition and multiplication.
