Help your students prepare for their Maths GCSE with this free area of a rhombus worksheet of 44 questions and answers
The geometric shape called a rhombus is a quadrilateral with 4 side lengths that are equal. The opposite sides of a rhombus and the opposite angles of a rhombus are equal. The diagonals of a rhombus are perpendicular bisectors of each other (they intersect in the middle of each line at right angles).
To find the area of the rhombus we multiply the lengths of the diagonals and divide by 2. The area formula for a rhombus is therefore “diagonal 1 x diagonal 2, divided by 2”. Remember that area is measured in square units, e.g. mm2, cm2 or m2.
Looking forward, students can then progress to additional geometry worksheets, for example a 3D shapes worksheet or angles in polygons worksheet.
There will be students in your class who require individual attention to help them succeed in their maths GCSEs. In a class of 30, it’s not always easy to provide.
Help your students feel confident with exam-style questions and the strategies they’ll need to answer them correctly with our dedicated GCSE maths revision programme.
Lessons are selected to provide support where each student needs it most, and specially-trained GCSE maths tutors adapt the pitch and pace of each lesson. This ensures a personalised revision programme that raises grades and boosts confidence.
