Ontario Curriculum Expectation:

5.E2.5 use the area relationships among rectangles, parallelograms, and triangles to develop the formulas for the area of a parallelogram and the area of a triangle, and solve related problems.

To find the area of a parallelogram, we multiply the base by the height.

The units of area are square units, such as cm2 or m2.
