Area is how we think about how much space something takes in two dimensions, such as comparing how much land one property takes up versus another. In this tutorial, we'll take a look at how area is measured.

Compare the areas and perimeters of rectangles when given a context or picture.

Classify quadrilaterals, including rectangles, rhombuses, and squares. See what attributes they have in common and which ones make them unique.
