Because two of the sides are parallel the two shapes will always give you a parallelogram. And if you teach the area of a parallelogram first (base times perpendicular height) then it is easy to conclude that the area of the trapezoid is half of the base (of the whole parallelogram, which is one "top" and one "bottom") multiplied by the perpendicular height! <br /><br />Hope that makes sense.Joanna Reynoldshttp://www.blogger.com/profile/12869446910551139215noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5283744795127405059.post-20794367408131105092012-05-14T20:42:56.459-05:002012-05-14T20:42:56.459-05:00I've missed yall too!!!
