**Area Worksheets & Study Resources:**

**Brief definition**

Area is geometrically defined as space or region occupied by a shape or a flat surface. It is expressed as the number of square units covered by a specific region. Units can be square cm, square inches, square feet, square meters, etc. This topic is being introduced to 2nd graders as the number of square grids in a shape or polygon. Young learners are asked to count how many square grids can fit a square, rectangle, trapezoid, pentagon, hexagon, etc. As they move on to 4th grade, the concept of dimension is already given. They use this concept to calculate the area of a certain polygon given its length and width. As this topic is being reinforced in 4th to 5th grades, learners are starting to use formulas in determining the area of a polygon. Lessons involving area extends up to 7th to 8th grade, where they need to show mastery of the lesson and apply it to more complex geometric principles.**Importance of the Topic**

Area is vital to understand bigger geometric concepts such as surface area, lateral area, and volume. As these concepts are interrelated, understanding the area in early grades provides a more compact foundation for learning advanced geometric lessons. Also, area is one of the mathematical concepts that have an obvious and direct application in real-life settings. Learning about an area helps people to visualize how vast a particular landmass is. This also aids understanding of cost estimation of a real estate property and more.**Application of the Learned Topic in Life**

Understanding the area is very useful in calculating and estimating the covered region of a particular farm or lot. In the world of real-estate properties, determining the area of a house and lot unit is essential in determining its price value. Commonly, a larger area means a higher price value. In doing farm-related work, a smaller farm area means less time for plowing the land. In demography, we can describe the population density of a particular city/country by getting the ratio of the concentration of the individuals over a certain land area.
