This game gets students to find the area of various shapes, including rectangles, triangles, compound shapes and parallelograms.

Players are dealt a set number of cards and are encouraged to find the area of the shapes on their cards. Some shapes such as the area of compound shapes require students to find missing sides by adding or subtracting known sides.

A base card is then turned over. Students all play a card from their hands which is closest in area to the base card. The player who was closest to the base cards wins all the cards played and puts them in a separate pile. These are their points. After a set number of rounds, the player with the most points wins.

Each group of cards are coloured so you can remove certain questions you have not taught yet, or to differentiate questions for your class.
-Rectangles are Green
-Triangles are Yellow
-Compound Shapes involving Rectangles are Red
-Parallelograms are Blue
-Compound Shapes involving Triangles are Grey.

Full rules of play and answer key for all cards are provided in the pack itself. The cards are also printed with easy-cut guides to make preparation fast and simple.
