## Year 7 Maths Worksheets

Introducing our new worksheet designed to help students master the concept of finding the area of a triangle. This worksheet features a total of 13 problems, including 10 standard practice problems and 3 application problems.

The 10 standard practice problems are designed to help students understand the basic formula for finding the area of a triangle. They will be asked to use the base and height of the triangle to calculate its area. These problems are ideal for students who are just starting to learn about the concept of area and need a lot of practice to build their skills.

The 3 application problems, on the other hand, are designed to help students apply what they have learned to real-world situations. These problems will challenge students to think critically and use their knowledge of area to solve practical problems. For example, students may be asked to find the area of a triangular garden plot or to calculate the amount of paint needed to cover a triangular wall.
