Recognize area as an attribute of plane figures and understand concepts of area measurement.

A square with side length 1 unit, called "a unit square," is said to have "one square unit" of area, and can be used to measure area.

A plane figure which can be covered without gaps or overlaps by n unit squares is said to have an area of n square units.

Use tiling to show in a concrete case that the area of a rectangle with whole-number side lengths a and b + c is the sum of a x b and a x c. Use area models to represent the distributive property in mathematical reasoning.
