You and your class will like this lesson. After watching a video depicting how visual models relate to volume and surface area of solid shapes, learners construct three-dimensional forms using nets. They calculate the surface area and volume for each and then draw them. Additional materials and videos are not included as hyperlinks, but web addresses are that can get you to them.
This is a multi-faced unit that looks at circles, arcs, sectors, cylinders, cones, spheres, and hemispheres. The formulas for finding length, area, surface area, and volume are discussed with an eye towards an intuitive understanding. Vocabulary is also stressed. This unit is organized to easily use only the parts you need.
Build boxes using unit cubes to compare surface area and volume. The group performs multiple experiments to determine properties of volume, such as if it makes a difference which order the dimensions are multiplied in. Extensive resources, including admission and exit tickets, worksheets, and related units, are available.
Geometry whizzes solve and complete 24 different problems that include determining the volume and surface area of spheres and cones. First, they use the given information to determine the volume of a cone. Then, pupils use the given information to determine the surface area of a sphere.
Learners compute surface area and volume of prisms. In this surface area lesson, students find the surface area and volume of rectangular and triangular prisms. Independently, learners use their computers to determine the volume, surface area and slant height of three-dimensional objects. Objects may be displayed on a whiteboard.
With this interactive lesson, learners compute the surface area of rectangular prisms. They visit an online investigation applet and record data on the provided handout. Pair this lesson with the volume lesson by the same publisher as an opportunity to incorporate technology into your math curriculum.
In this volume and surface area worksheet, 10th graders solve and complete 12 different types of problems. First, they find the volume and total surface area of a given circle. Then, students find the height and radius of a cylinder illustrated. They also find the volume of the remaining solid shown.
In this volume and surface area learning exercise, 10th graders solve and complete 12 different types of problems. First, they find the volume of an isosceles trapezoid. Then, students find the volume and total surface area of a sphere. They also find the volume between a cylinder and sphere illustrated.
Students explore the volume and surface area of three dimensional figures. Through the use of video, students discover three dimensional shapes, their uses in real-life applications, and methods used to calculate their volume and surface area. Students participate in hands-on activities to calculate the volume and surface area of different shapes.
Eighth graders investigate how to calculate volume and surface areas of a variety of solid figures. They view and discuss the two-dimensional patterns of three-dimensional objects, discuss the definition of circumference and area of a circle, and solve volume and surface area problems on a worksheet.
