A Generalized Area Formula.
Usnick, Virginia E.; And Others
Mathematics Teacher, v85 n9 p752-54 Dec 1992
Presents a method that connects the area formulas for triangles, rectangles, parallelograms, and trapezoids by focusing on the relationships between the bases and heights of each figure. Transformations allow figures to be reconceptualized to establish a general concept of area that can be applied to other figures. (MDH)
