Area Worksheets

On this webpage you will find links to all of our specific pages of area worksheets.

We have a range of different worksheets on area, including area of rectangles, right triangles and quadrilaterals.

There is also a printable formula page for finding the area of different 2d shapes.

What is Area?

  • Area is the amount of space that is inside a shape.
  • Because it is an amount of space, it has to be measured in squares.
  • If the shape is measured in cm, then the area would be measured in square cm or cm2

Area of a Rectangle

  • If you are measuring the area of a rectangle, then the area will equal the length multiplied by the width.
  • Or Area of a rectangle = length x width.
  • The area of the rectangle below is 5 x 3 = 15 squares.
