Find Surface Area educational ideas and activities
In this 3D shapes worksheet, 10th graders solve and complete 5 various types of problems. First, they find the area of the logo item shown. Then, students find the height of a cuboid given its length and width. In addition, they circle the formula that represents the surface area of an item.
8th graders engage in an interdisciplinary lesson about advertising through integration with music, science, mathematics, visual art, drama-theater, and language arts. They write advertising jingle lyrics in English language arts or music class and compose the music for their jingles in music class to market original products that they create in science class. Tip: This concept can be adapted to a variety of scenarios.
In this maximum and minimum worksheet, students solve and complete 10 various types of word problems. First, they find the numbers if the product of the square of one of the numbers with the cube of the other number is to be a maximum. Then, students determine the coordinates of the point on a parabola given a point.
Thomas needs help with his fish tank! He wants to add a large decoration that will serve as a home for the fish in the tank. The decoration is a right solid cylinder with a hole through the middle in the shape of a right square prism. Thomas wants to make sure that the water in the tank won't overflow when he adds the decoration. Geometers use volume formulas for cylinders and prisms in this real-world problem that requires them to consider different interpretations of how the information is presented.
Tenth graders explore the concept of 3-D similarity of polygons. In this 3-D similarity of polygons instructional activity, 10th graders measure the lengths, widths, and heights of two boxes that students consider to be similar. Students work in groups to identify corresponding angles and sides among two 3-D figures.
In this perimeter and area worksheet, students find the perimeter of various polygons. They compute the perimeter, surface area, circumference, and volume of given figures. Students explore trigonometric ratios. This twelve-page worksheet contains detailed notes, examples, and approximately 10 examples with answers.
For this college level calculus worksheet, students evaluate integrals and determine whether it is best to use Green’s Theorem, the Fundamental Theorem of Line Integrals, direct integration, or a combination. The two page worksheet has six problems. Answers are not provided.
In this functions worksheet, 10th graders solve and complete 6 different types of problems. First, they find the largest value of a given function. Then, students determine the values of the constants a, b, c, dso that the curve is a given equation. They also find the dimensions of a cylinder which has the smallest total surface area.
In this line and angles worksheet, students explore basic geometry vocabulary. They classify polygons. Students determine the area and perimeter of given shapes. They examine the parts of a circle, find volume and surface area of objects. Students identify various properties of angles and sides. This nineteen-page worksheet contains detailed notes. The approximately 15 examples may be used as independent work with answers.
