Students are constantly confusing surface area and volume of rectangular prisms and cylinders. This product includes 18 situations cards, 36 calculation cards, and 1 sort page. Students will read, decide and sort each card into the appropriate category.
This activity is a great activity for applying mathematics inside the realm of weight lifting. Students will be required to calculate volumes of weight plates (cylinders), convert between units and determine their densities to discover their metal makeup.
A structured approach to teaching surface area can make it so much easier for students to understand! These materials lend themselves to use in interactive notebooks. These foldable notes, examples, and practice problems feature a structured step by step format to guide student thinking as they calculate the surface area of each figure. Students will find the surface areas of prisms, pyramids, cylinders, cones, and spheres.
Volume and Surface Area Coloring Activity (Prisms, Pyramids, Cylinders, Cones) This is a fun way for students to practice finding both volume and surface area of 3D figures. There are 12 problems total, 6 volume and 6 surface area. This includes rectangular prisms, cylinders, cones, and pyramids. Students match their answers at the bottom, and color the egg accordingly. *Note - calculations were done using the pi symbol on the calculator. Egg designed by <strong><a…
This product includes a fifteen question assessment on the volume of cylinders, cones and spheres. The first six questions ask the students to calculate the volume of the solids. The second page of the quiz asks students to determine the missing length of a solid if the volume is provided. An answer key is provided.
