Students learn how to calculate the area of parallelograms and trapeziums by considering how a parallelogram can form a rectangle and a trapezium a rectangle and triangle. Using this knowledge they derive the formulae for their respective areas. As the lesson progresses there is opportunity to apply these formulae to calculate the areas.

**Differentiated Learning Objectives**

- All students should be able to calculate the area of a parallelogram using the formula
- Most students should be able to calculate the area of a parallelogram and trapezium using the formulae.
- Some students should be able to calculate the area of compound shapes involving parallelograms and trapeziums.
