Instructional Ideas

  • Have pupils create a net and color in the parts as they find the surface area
Classroom Considerations

  • Learners should be familiar with the formula for area of a circle
  • Continues from the previous two lessons in this series that focus on cylinders 

  • Spends time explaining the components of the surface area formula

  • Video does not incorporate problem-solving examples
