Learn how to find the area of a composite shape by splitting it into three rectangles. In this activity, students find the area of each of the three rectangles and find their sum to find the total area

A. Determine area of a composite shape by splitting it into two rectangles and adding the areas (Part 1)

B. Determine area of a composite shape by completing the rectangle and subtracting the area of the missing piece (Part 1)

C. Determine area of a composite shape by completing the rectangle and subtracting the area of the missing piece (Part 2)

E. Determine the area of a composite shape using either the "break apart and add" or "complete and subtract" strategy
