              Area of Triangles and Composite Shapes

              Progressing on from finding the area of a triangle students calculate the area of composite shapes made up of triangles and rectangles.  Using right-angled, isosceles and scalene triangles the learning progresses through the level of challenge and complexity in each problem.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate the area of a triangle and rectangle.
              • Most students should be able to find the area of a composite shape made from triangles and rectangles.
              • Some students should be able to set up and solve equations involving composite areas.
