    At the end of unit 10, students will be able to answer the following essential questions about area:
    • How can you find the area of parallelograms?
    • What is the relationship among the areas of triangles, rectangles, and parallelograms?
    • How can you find the area of triangles?
    • What is the relationship between the areas of trapezoids and parallelograms?
    • How can you find the area of trapezoids?
    • How can you find the area of regular polygons?
    • How can you find the area of composite figures?
    • How can you use the strategy "find a pattern" to show how changing dimensions affects area?
    • How can you plot polygons on a coordinate plane and find their side lengths?
