# 6th Grade Math - Area Formulas

This post explains and give practice opportunities related to TEKS 6.8B:

model area formulas for parallelograms, trapezoids, and triangles by decomposing and rearranging parts of these shapes

## Instruction

Area formulas should be memorized but that doesn't mean students should know how to derive them. Here's how to find the formula for the area of a triangle.

Here's a video showing how to derive the area of a parallelogram.

Finally, the formula for area of a trapezoid can be represented multiple ways.
