Objective: I know how to calculate the area of a trapezoid given the xy coordinates of the vertices.
Step 1: Plot the points of the ordered pairs.
Step 2: Find the base1, base2 and height of the trapezoid.
Step 3: Find the area of the trapezoid.
Read the lesson on coordinate planes if you need to lean about ordered pairs and xy coordinate plane.
