Parallelogram Area Exploration
In the applet below you will see 4 parallelograms all with side lengths of 4 and 6. What do you notice about their areas?
Do all of the parallelograms have the same area? Which one has the largest area? Which on has the smallest area? Is there a maximum or minimum area for a parallelogram with side lengths of 4 and 6? Describe the characteristics associated with each.
