Students investigate the formula for the area of regular polygons given the length of one side.
In this activity, students will investigate the formula for finding the area of a regular polygon given the length of the sides. First, students will discover the formula for regular polygons of n = 3, 4, and 5 sides.
Next, students will apply what they have learned to solve problems using the formula derived in Problem 1.
Finally, in Problem 3, students will apply what they have learned to real-world applications.
