    Hello
    How many ways are there to find the area of a compound shape?
    In this blog I show how I encourage students to explore three different ways of calculating a composite area. They can pick the one they like the most to solve future problems and a different approach to check the solutions.

    Feedback is welcome - please do leave a comment.

    Thank you
