Brilliant! -nice to use to extend the idea that triangles and trapezia are half a parallelogram, plus great that the correct sides need to be selected...really gets the kids thinking!

I got the kids to develop this idea. Using the 'T for .... T for 2 .... divide by 2....' also gets the pupils to learn the method for triangles and trapeziums and not to rely on remembering the formula.
