Nets and Composite Figures. In this collaborative activity, students find the areas of nets (rectangular prisms, triangular prisms, square pyramids, triangular pyramids) and composite figures that are made of rectangles and triangles. There is no need to know the formula for the area of a trapezoid to compute any of the areas.
