RATIONALE

A trapezium is a quadrilateral that has exactly one pair of parallel sides. Remember, a trapezium has only one pair of opposite sides to be parallel which clearly says it is not a parallelogram. The area of Trapezium is 1/2 base x height (i.e. 1/2 bh).  It is important that pupils are familiar with the definitions of shapes and know their specific properties. The concept of Trapezium is needed for the pupils to understand and appreciate the shapes in design.
