Good morning class! Today we are going to dive into an exciting and magical world of mathematics – the world of area! Area is all around us, and it is a crucial concept that we will encounter in many aspects of our lives. So, we will start with a simple question:

Area is a measure of how much space is occupied by an object or a shape. It is like a measurement of the surface covered by something. For example, the area of a rectangular rug is the measure of how much of the floor it covers. Similarly, the area of a football field is the measure of how much grass is needed to cover the entire field.

As I mentioned earlier, area is an essential concept that we use in our daily lives. Whether it is calculating the dimensions of our home, estimating the amount of paint we need to cover a wall, or determining the amount of fabric we need for a dress, we need to use area calculations. Additionally, area plays a crucial role in many professions such as architecture, engineering, and in the design of buildings and structures.

Now that we’ve got a good grasp of what area is and its significance, let's dive into the basics of calculating area. We will start with calculating the area of simple geometric shapes such as squares, triangles and rectangles.

I hope you are as excited as I am to get started on this journey to discover the magic of area in mathematics!
