Using Linear Equations to Define Geometric Solids

This Using Linear Equations to Define Geometric Solids lesson plan also includes:

Making the transition from two-dimensional shapes to three-dimensional solids can be difficult for many geometry learners. This comprehensive Common Core lesson starts with writing and graphing linear equations to define a bounded region and calculating the areas and perimeters of the space. Using this as a base, the lesson then has learners revolve these regions to create solid figures and calculate the resulting volume. A real-world example using a bowling ball and visualization software caps off this in-depth instruction.
