We'll start by examining area. Area is the measure of space occupied by a 2-dimensional shape. |

One way to measure area is to find the number of square units a shape covers on a grid. Since this square fits perfectly on our grid we can easily count the number of square units it covers. (Later we'll learn how to use a grid to estimate the area of a circle.) |

How many squares does this shape cover? |
