#### DESCRIPTION:

Watch Mr. Almeida explain the formula for the area of a triangle. See if you can see why the formula for area of a triangle is A=1/2 x b x h. Think about first, and then continue to read for the answer. The formula for area of a triangle is so because a triangle is 1/2 of a rectangle. Try drawing a triangle and then draw dotted lines going for another height going from the base. If it a right triangle, connect the parallel length on top with a dotted line. Do you see a rectangle? The triangle is half of that. That is why the formula works. This illustrates Common Core math standard 6.G.1.
