In this lesson, we will learn:

- The basic properties of the shape of the parallelogram
- How to understand and calculate the perimeter of a parallelogram
- How to understand and calculate the area of a parallelogram

- A
**parallelogram**is a 2D shape with 4 straight sides - Each pair of sides (across from each other) are
**parallel**__and__the**same length** - The internal angles are
right angles (90°); otherwise it would be a__not__**rectangle** - Opposite angles are the same size

- A special parallelogram with all sides of equal length is called a
**rhombus**

- The
**perimeter**is the exact distance around the shape. - Perimeter is a 1D (one-dimensional) quantity
- It uses
**units**such as meters (m, cm, mm, km), miles (mi), yards (yd), or inches and feet (in and ft) - For
**parallelograms**, the**formula**is written as: **P**_{parallelogram}= $( 2 \, \times \,a) \, + \, (2\, \times \, b)$- Where $a$ is the length of one of the sides, and $b$ is the length of the other side
- The
**area**is the space that is covered by the shape. - Area is a 2D (two-dimensional) quantity
- It uses
such as square meters (m__squared__units^{2}, cm^{2}, mm^{2}, km^{2}), square miles (mi^{2}), square yards (yd^{2}), or square inches and feet (in^{2}and ft^{2}) - For
**parallelograms**, the**formula**is written as: **A**_{parallelogram}= $b \, \times \, h$- Where $b$ is base, and $h$ is height
- A parallelogram’s
**height**is__not__the same as the slant (side) length.

**Parallelograms Word Problem - 1**

Sophia wants to make a special picture frame using parallelograms. It will use four of the same parallelograms with the measurements: 8cm along the base and 3cm in height.a)What is the area of the picture frame?b)If the slanted part of the parallelogram is 5cm, what is the perimeter of the picture frame? Do not count the edges of the parallelograms that are glued together.
