In this surface area worksheet, students determine the surface area of pyramids, rectangular prisms, and other solids. They find the surface area of nets. Students compute the area of floor plans and volume of solids. This two-page worksheet contains 18 multiple-choice problems.
Tenth graders calculate the surface area using the geometric formula. In this geometry lesson, 10th graders identify bases and lateral faces on different polygons before they can calculate the surface area of the shapes. They find the SA of pyramids, cylinders and triangles.
For this volume worksheet, 10th graders solve 10 different problems that include various types of figures. First, they determine the volume of a prism, pyramid, cylinder, cone, and a sphere as shown. Then, students determine the surface are of each of the same figures given the measurements.
Fifteen formulas for area, surface area, perimeter, circumference, and volume can be matched with descriptions of their uses: "the amount of soup inside a can," "the distance around a pizza," "the amount of air inside an ice cream cone," or "the infield of a baseball diamond." Once learners have completed the matching exercise, they can keep the sheet in their notebooks for reference.
