Volume of Solid Figures
Learners calculate volume using the correct formula and the correct unit. They explore different prisms, spheres, cubes, and cones as they calculate volume and relate it to depths in oceans.
Perimeter and Area
In this perimeter and area activity, students find the surface area of given polygons. They determine the area of shaded regions. This one-page activity contains 10 multiple-choice problems. Answers are provided.
Shaping Up: Geometric Shape Relationships
Young scholars analyze and identify different parts of a solid. In this geometry lesson, students calculate the surface area of solids and prisms, as they derive the formulas based on the shape of the polygon.
Cook Me Up Some Equations
Students study a variety of math concepts in the context of cooking up a meal. In this math lesson, students calculate surface area and volume. They draw and interpret different types of graphs.
Maximum and Minimum Word Problems
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.
Fish Tank Problem
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.
In this volume worksheet, students find the volume of boxes going into a truck and answer short answer questions about it. Students complete 3 questions.
Geometry Terms, Abbreviations, and Formulas
In this reference worksheet, students review eleven terms, fifteen abbreviations, and eight shapes and formulas. This is a basic geometry reference sheet.
Chapter 6: Geometry Perimeter and Area
In this perimeter and area activity, 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 activity contains detailed notes, examples, and approximately 10 examples with answers.
Eighth graders define volume, prisms, cylinders, pyramids, and cones. They find the volume of those shapes, and determine which volume formulas to use for each shape. They utilize a worksheet and access websites imbedded in this plan to gain practice.
Using Concept Maps to Design 3D Spheres
High schoolers create three dimensional shapes using concept maps. In this geometry instructional activity, students investigate the impact of mental schemas on humans. They collect data on this topic and plot their data on a coordinate plane.
In this college level calculus instructional activity, 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 instructional activity has six problems. Answers are not provided.
In this functions instructional activity, 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.
