Welcome to the Math Salamanders Area worksheets page.

Here you will find a range of free printable area sheets,
which will help your child to learn to work out the areas of a range of rectangles and rectilinear shapes.

These sheets are aimed at children who are 3rd or 4th grade level.

On this webpage you will find our range of worksheets to help your child learn to work out the area of a range of rectangles.

These sheets are graded from easiest to hardest, and each sheet comes complete with answers.

Using these sheets will help your child to:

- understand what area is;
- know how to find the area (and perimeter) of a rectangle;
- know how to find the area (and perimeter) of rectilinear 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.

The aim of these challenges is to get children to apply their knowledge of area and perimeter to solve problems and look for patterns in their results.

Each problem needs to be identified as either an area problem or a perimeter problem and then solved..

The problems on the sheet are identical, but the measurements get progressively harder to do!

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

This section contains worksheets on area at a 5th and 6th grade level.

The focus is on calculating the area of triangles and different quadrilaterals.

Using these sheets will help your child to:

- know how to calculate the area of a triangle;
- know how to calculate the area of a range of quadrilaterals.
- learn the formulas to calculate the area of triangles and some quadrilaterals.

Here is our selection of free printable perimeter worksheets for 3rd and 4th grade.

The sheets are all graded in order from easiest to hardest.

Using these sheets will help your child to:

- work out the perimeter of a range of rectangles;
- find the perimeter of rectilinear shapes.

All the sheets in this section support Elementary Math Benchmarks.

Here is our selection of 4th grade Geometry worksheets.

Using these sheets will help you to:

- classify angles - acute, obtuse, right, reflex, straight;
- classify triangles - acute, obtuse, right;
- measure angles using a protractor;
- know that angles in a triangle add up to 180°
- plot and write coordinates in the first quadrant.

All the sheets in this section support Elementary math benchmarks.

Here is our selection of measurement worksheets for 3rd graders.

These sheets involve reading scales going up in halves, ones, fives, tens, fifties and hundreds to find the length, weight or liquid capacity.

Using these sheets will help children to consolidate their counting and place value as well as learning to read and estimate using a simple scale.
