We got to formulas for rectangles and parallelograms today (A=bh), but we spent most of our time on finding area by different methods. Some in-class work is attached below; it is practice finding area by surrounding with a rectangle. Some notes are attached as well.
HW #1, due next time we meet, is pp 413-415: 1-13, 15-19, 22-24. If you multiply or divide two numbers to get an answer, write them down to show your work.
