I've managed to understand how to derive all the other equations, however, I'm struggling with the equation without acceleration, s = ½ (u+v).
My textbook says to treat the area under the graph as the area of a trapezium, but I'm struggling to see it as a trapezium.

Have you tried drawing your own velocity-time graph? What do you come up with if you draw a v-t graph with the following: a particle starting with velocity u at a time t=0, that is accelerating with constant acceleration to a velocity v at a time t=t?
