Unit 3, Lesson 25# Volume and Surface Area

EngageNY 45 min(s)

Students solve real-world and mathematical problems involving volume and surface areas of three-dimensional objects composed of cubes and right prisms. As students work on the problems, encourage them to present their approaches for determining the volume and surface area. The initial questions specifically ask for volume, but later in the lesson, students must interpret the context of the problem to know which measurement to choose. Several problems involve finding the height of a prism if the volume and two other dimensions are given.
