## Quiz Topics

10 minutes

Although there are only 3 problems on this quiz, several geometry concepts will be assessed.

For problem 1, students will have to find the area of the irregular polygon by either dividing into smaller polygons or creating a larger polygon.  Using either method, students will have to find the missing dimensions, before using the area formulas.  Depending on the method, students will have to know the area formulas for a rectangle, trapezoid, and triangle.

For problem 2, students will have use the area formula for a rectangle and triangle.  They will need to conclude that to determine the area of the shaded region, they will have to subtract the two areas.

For problem 3, students will have to find the area of the irregular polygon by dividing it into a square and triangle.  They will need to know and apply the area formulas and conclude that the areas should be added.
