- This lesson focuses on using the properties of rectangles to calculate area. It is designed to aid adult students to successfully master and apply basic geometry knowledge in a professional setting (construction and related) and can also contribute to achieving High School Equivalency (HSE).
Areas to be covered include properties of rectangles and squares; definition of ‘square’; right-angled triangles; calculating areas of rectangles and right-angled triangles; decomposition of area into manageable units; and calculating costs. Students will apply this knowledge to calculating the costs of purchasing building materials.
