Unit On Volume And Surface Area, Bruce Mellen

Lesson Plans

To solidify computation of volume and surface area of rectangular prisms and cylinders using a technology tool, and comparing volumes and surface areas between objects.

Students will be able to…

• setup an Excel spreadsheet for the calculation of volume and surface area of any two rectangular prisms and any two cylinders,

• check their setup to assure accuracy of their model,

• compare volume between rectangular prisms of different dimensions,

• compare surface area between rectangular prisms of similar volume,

• generalize minimizing surface area of a rectangular prism,

• compare volume between cylinders of different dimensions,

• compare surface area between cylinders of similar volume ...
