Activity Overview

Electronic, auto correcting assessment for the Australian Mathematics Curriculum standard ACMMG242 using the TI-Navigator system including a companion PDF of the same. This assessment is provided with exact answers (E) or approximate (A) for both the TI-Nspire files and the companion PDF documents.


  • ACMMG242 – Solve problems involving surface area and volume for a range of prisms, cylinders and composite solids.
  • Note: There are two forms for this assessment, exact answers (E) and approximate answers (A).


  • Total Surface Area
  • Volume
  • Composite shape
  • Sphere
  • Prism

About the Lesson

The purpose of this material is to provide immediate feedback for teachers and students using the TI-Navigator system. The 3D objects in the TI-Nspire documents can be rotated by students to gain different views of the same object and better understand the composite solids. The questions are automatically corrected and summarized using the TI-Navigator software providing teachers with the opportunity to respond to student needs. A PDF copy of the assessment is provided for schools that do not have TI-Nspire and TI-Navigator.
