# Area (F)

Welcome to GCSE Area! As we embark on our journey through the world of mathematics, we're taking a brief detour into the realm of wildlife with an educational video on the force exerted by crocodile jaws during mealtime. While it might seem like a divergence from our usual math revision, this captivating video serves as an engaging diversion, offering a real-world application of mathematical principles.

Area is all about how much space a flat shape takes up. See how well you can apply your knowledge of Area in this GCSE Maths quiz.

A straight line has only one dimension, its length. Once we draw more lines in different directions to form an enclosed shape, we create something in 2 dimensions. In order to describe this we need more than just the length of each line, we also need to know how much space on a flat surface it takes up. This is known as its area, and we include the word ‘square’ in its units, such as cm2 (square centimetres) and m2 (square metres).

To be successful when solving area problems, you need to know a few formulae. The most common ones are for the rectangle (and therefore the square too), the triangle and the circle.
