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.
