Area on a Coordinate Grid Worksheets

How to Find the Area of a Shape on a Coordinate Grid? We know that area is the amount of space a shape covers. When it comes to finding areas of geometrical shapes, we can use the standardized formulae for each of these to find the area. But what if you have to calculate the area of a shape on coordinate grid? You can calculate the area of a rectangle by counting the number of units each side cover. It is all about counting those units out carefully. You can count the units to find the base and height of all three triangles and subtract them from the area of the rectangle. This works well for most quadrilaterals. As you move on to circles, we have a section for that too.
