This interactive applet is designed to "develop students' understanding of the concept of area." In it, students are able to draw shapes on a grid, represented in both small and large units squared. The area of the drawn portion is given in both measurements, proportional to one another, where one small unit is equal to 1/144th of a large unit. Students are given room to draw freely, recognizing patterns as they develop between the area measurements of the shapes they create.
