1.1 13 cm × 13 cm = 169 cm²
1.2 2,2 m × 1,4 m = 3,08 m²
1.3 181 m × 93 m = 16 833 m²
1.4 4,2 m × 2,8 m = 11,76 m²
1.5 243 mm × 178 mm = 43 254 mm²
1. Let us see whether you are able to calculate the area of the following (remember to begin your operations with a number sentence and also to take care to include the unit when you write down your final answer):
1.1 the area of a square with a side length of 13 cm

Learning Outcome 4: The learner will be able to use appropriate measuring units, instruments and formulae in a variety of contexts.
Assessment Standard 4.8: We know this when the learner investigates and approximates (alone and/or as a member of a group or team):
4.8.2: area of polygons (using square grids) in order to develop rules for calculating the area of squares and rectangles.
