### Introduction to Area of Rectangle Worksheets

In these free math worksheets, you will learn how to draw rows and columns to determine the area of a rectangle and to relate that to the formula of multiplying of the side lengths to find the area.

How to find the area of a rectangle?

1. Area as the measure of the amount of space inside a two-dimensional shape, for example a rectangle.

2. We can determine the area of the rectangle by partition the rectangle into smaller squares.
Each square should have sides of equal length and cover an entire side of the rectangle.
The total number of squares represents the area of the rectangle. Each square is considered a unit area.

3. We can also use the area formula for rectangles.
Area = length×width. (length is the longer side, the width is the shorter side)
This formula is a quick way to calculate the area without counting individual squares.
