In this activity, students will be finding both the Surface Area and Volume of several 3D objects.
- Students will analyze and discuss 3D objects and the 2D shapes that make up those objects.
- Students will unfold 3D objects to aid in finding both the Surface Area and Volume of the objects.
- Students will apply this knowledge to finding the Surface Area and Volume of real-world objects.
- Students will try to make a connection with how to understand these topics in IB Mathematics courses and on their final assessments.
- Surface Area
About the Lesson
Students will work to solve real-world Surface Area and Volume problems. They will also have a chance to practice the unfolding of 3D objects.
