 Let's start with the homework.

 Homework:
 Create and answer an area question like the one below.


 Classwork:

 1st: Quiz on definitions, formulas, and computing area and perimeter.
 like:


 2nd: Produce spread sheet which will compute the areas of:
 rectangles
 triangles
 parallelogram
 trapezoids
 circles

 For each of the above the spread sheet will include:


the graphic from this page 
 Copy & Paste it into the spread sheet.


cells in which to place required dimensions



cells which use formulas to complete the computation.

 ·
 For more information on how formulas work see:
formulas
or other spread sheet info at the :Spread Sheet Info Pages"


 Notes:


The homework must have at least 3 figures in it.
To switch between applications use ALT + TAB and release when you get to the the application you need.
1st: open excel.
2nd: open the web page.

5th: paste it in excel using CRTL + V.
 Notes:


Note:
 the symbol in Excel for
, pi is
 pi()
 the symbol for square is
 ^2
 To test the formula for computing the area of a trapezoid
use the following info:
 area of a trapezoid: h(b1 + b2) divided by 2
 you figure out the needed formula and check it with
 b1 = 2
 b2 = 4
 height = 6
 area = 18 square units
 Last:
 Email your spread sheet to yourself and to your prof.
