Poster about calculating the area of triangles. The common error pupils make when finding the area of a triangle is that they forget to divide it by half and most of them use the slope sides of the triangle. They also forget to write the corresponding units. Print them out, laminate and put them on your Maths wall as a reminder. Hope you find it useful.
