This resource is rich with student thinking around computing the surface area and volume of a square pyramid and a cone. Embedded in what looks like a typical lesson out of a textbook are vocabulary, examples including complete solutions and graphics, an activity filling in the steps of a proof, an activity where learners find an unknown measurement of a pyramid or cone, assessment discussion questions, and many practice problems and applications.
In this surface area activity, students find the surface area of cones.  They determine the surface area from the given radius, diameter and slant height.  This two-page activity contains 8 problems.  Answers are provided on the last page.
The lateral surface area of a cone. Hmmm, what does that mean? Oh, it means the part you see if the cone was sitting on a flat surface, so it does not include the base. But if you want to include the base then it would be finding the surface area of a cone. Watch this video and learn the formulas to find the lateral area and the surface area of a cone.
Did you know you can use the Pythagorean theorem to find the slant height of a cone? You can! Just watch this tutorial and see how you can find the lateral and surface area of a given cone using slant height and the Pythagorean theorem.
Pupils explore the concept of surface area. In this surface area lesson, students work in groups to find surface area of pyramids. Pupils use grid paper and area formulas to calculate surface area and explain the relationship involved in it.
