Students draw rectangles and determine the area by counting the squares required to exactly cover the figure. One handout illustrates a square centimeter and gives rectangles whose area must be determined in square centimeters. Students also must complete a table showing the dimensions of a rectangle for which they must draw and find the area by counting. By examining the table, students make the connection that the dimensions of the rectangle may be multiplied to determine the area. They apply this knowledge in working some real world problems dealing with areas of rectangles.
