8.G.9 Day 1

Intro To Volume

Focus Q – What are volume and surface area? How do you find them for a rectangular prism?

  • Students will work in groups to come up with a written or pictorial definition of volume – followed by surface area.
  • Students will be provided (if supplies allow) a small amount of unified cubes and a box to demonstrate what they are referencing or to assist in their determination.
  • Once this is done, students will be given several chances to practice this on various rectangular prisms.
  • If time allows students should be given a chance to find the area and circumference of several circles. This could be an exit ticket or a starter for the next day.

So, what do you think ?
