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 students. 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.
- Lesson tries to enhances learner's understanding by providing a variety of problems and approaches to address different learning modalities
- Visual models help pupils progress from two-dimensional to three dimensional in a supported context
- Lesson works toward a deep conceptual understanding of volume and how changes in radius effect it.
- Designed for Common Core math standards
