Areas of kites rhombuses and trapeziums
Measurement and introduction to Pythagoras' theorem
Year 8
Continuing with the series on area for Year 8 Maths, I present this video on areas of kites, rhombuses (or rhombi) and trapeziums (which are my favourite shapes!). I look at where the area formulae come from and some simple ways to remember them. There are lots of worked examples which show you how the questions are structured and how they might trick you! All delivered in my own unique style.
