Quicklinks to 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.

- 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 cm
^{2}

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.

Try out the app produced by PhET Interactive Simulations from the University of Colorado.

It is a great way of exploring area and perimeter in a fun and engaging way.

We have also created a few challenges that can be used alongside the app.

Our printable support page has the formulas for the area of common 2d shapes.

The sheets here include finding the area of rectangles and also finding the area of rectilinear shapes.

Rectilinear shapes are shapes made up of several rectangles.

We have a wide range of sheets suitable for students from 3rd grade and upwards.
