Unit of InstructionFocus 8: Geometry
Standard(s) Taught


Find the area of right triangles, other triangles, special quadrilaterals, and polygons by composing into rectangles or decomposing into triangles and other shapes; apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.


Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Students are successful when they can…

  • reason that familiar shapes can be put together to create
    composite shapes whose area is equal to that part of the sum of
    the areas of the joining shapes. For example, show the area
    formula for a parallelogram by composing it into rectangles.
  • model composite shares and their decomposition with hands-on
    materials such as attribute shapes, Power Polygons™, and
  • decompose composite shapes into familiar shapes and use the
    areas of the familiar shapes to find the area of the composite
  • generalize and clarify understanding of how the area of a shape
    is the sum of the areas of the shapes that make up the
    composite shapes.
  • solve problems from the real-world using composite figures to
    model real-world examples such as the size of a late or a crater
    on the moon.
  • determine the area of a missing region using composition and
    decomposition of polygons.
