The Luxor - Pyramids, Surface Area & Volume

Students investigate the surface area and volume of the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas. They calculate the slant height, lateral edge, and diagonal length of the base. Using this information, students explore other areas of the hotel, such as the square feet of glass on the outer wall, angles the elevators travel, and volume of the entire pyramid.
