Tenth graders explore surface area.  In this geometry lesson, 10th graders  use interactive software to investigate surface area of a cube.  The lesson encourages algebraic thinking as patterns are explored.
Students explore geometry using a Rubik's Cube. In this 2-D and 3-D shapes lesson, students use the Rubik's Cube to find the center, edge and corner pieces. Students then find the dimensions of the Rubik's Cube and read the solution guide. After reading students demonstrate methods and algorithms.
By describing the formula used to calculate the volume of a triangular prism, Sal gives students practice in solving volume equations. The questions are straight-forward and solved in an easy to follow manner. Show this to your class as preparation for a test relating to calculating volume.
Students solve a word problem that explores the shape of a cube and ways that part of it can be colored. They discuss the problem and analyze a Rubik's cube, explore the problem using a graph, and discuss the solutions as a class.
Third graders create 3-dimensional models. In this geometry lesson, 3rd graders create 3-dimensional visual representations of cubes that they craft from 2-dimensional examples in order to investigate the differences between the 2.
Students investigate the volume of cones. In this geometry lesson, students define the formula to find the volume of cones. They define the concept of having to dissect a three dimensional figure and find the volume.

New! Shapes

Investigate the properties of three-dimensional figures with this Arctic-themed math instructional activity. Beginning with a class discussion about different types of solid figures present in the classroom, young mathematicians are then given a two-sided worksheet asking them to draw 3-D shapes, identify their parts, and create cubes from a series of nets. Though the instructional activity does not provide any detailed information about the Arctic, it is does provide a fun change of pace to a geometry unit in the upper-elementary grades.
Learners differentiate between cubes and unit cubes. In this geometry lesson, students create linking cubes and use it as a manipulative to answer questions. They define the faces, edges and sides of the cubes as it relates to unit cubes.
In this exploring projective geometry worksheet, students use computer software for instruction, then answer 9 questions about 3D drawings.
Fourth graders find the volume of cubes and cylinders. To determine volume, they fill large cubes with centimeter cubes. They discuss the formula used to find the volume of a cube. Students explore why the solution to the volume of a cube is always a perfect cube. They use nets to discover the formula for finding the volume of cylinders.
Students use problem solving skills to create various models of tricubes, tetracubes, and pentacubes. They classify the cubes into various groupings and identify them as mirror images, regular arrangements, and irregular arrangements. Students draw the figures they create.
Learners explore area and perimeter through coordinate geometry using student literature, hands-on manipulatives, and the Internet.
Students examine shapes and sizes by viewing images in a slide-show. In this geometry identification lesson plan, students view a PowerPoint presentation with images of shapes the students identify and describe. Students discuss the differences between 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional shapes as well.
In this geometry worksheet, 10th graders are provided with explanations of many of the basic terms and topics of geometry, including area, perimeter, volume, angle measure of polygons, and similar triangles. The eighteen page worksheet contains twenty-four worked examples.
Fourth graders use an origami design to make a set of cubes. Individually, they identify the characteristics of different quadrilaterals as they are folding the paper into cubes. To end the lesson, they make a new design with new origami shapes.
Examine the properties of cubes in this hands-on geometry lesson plan. Young geometers construct boxes by folding and cutting grid paper. They define geometric terms, such as an edge, area, net, and surface area.
In this cubes worksheet, students answer short answer questions about objects that are cubes. Students also sketch and make cubes.
In this geometry worksheet, 10th graders solve for the surface area of a cube using the given side. They use the area formula for cubes and use the correct unit. There are 6 questions with an answer key. 
In this cube worksheet, students use connecting cubes to build structures pictured on worksheet; bottom structure is shown from 2 different angles, 4 structures total.
In this connecting cube structures practice worksheet, students solve 4 problems that require them to use connecting cubes to build the pictured structures.
