Ok welcome to lesson 2 the topic is area. Knowing how to find the area and volume of basic figures is a critical skill for the GED. As long as you know the formulas I don’t think you will have a problem learning the material. One thing I want you to keep in mind is area and volume have different units of measure. Knowing the correct units of measure is important to identifying a correct solution so pay special attention to the units I use in the lesson.
Things to focus on in this lesson:
• the units of measure for area
• the area formulas for basic figures
Chapter 11 Lesson 2
Area of Basic Figures
do you have a date and location to take the GED? if not you need to call your local school district or community college to find out….
Well done you finished lesson 2 on area. You should be able to: * find the area of basic figures * know how to use all the area formulas * understand the units of measure for area Now that you understand basic area we can continue to learn about surface area Lesson 3: Surface Area of Basic Figures

Lesson 1: Circles Area and Circumference Lesson 2: Area of Basic Figures Lesson 3: Surface Area of Basic Figures Lesson 4: Volume of Basic Figures Lesson 5: The Distance and Midpoint Formulas Lesson 6: The Pythagorean Theorem
