Unit 7, Lesson 16# Applying Volume and Surface Area

Open Up Resources 35 min(s)

Given contextual situations calculate the volume or surface area. Let's explore things that are proportional to volume or surface area. Learning targets: students can solve problems involving the volume and surface area of children's play structures. In this second lesson on applying surface area and volume to solve problems, students solve more complex real-word problems that require them to choose which of the two quantities is appropriate for solving the problem, or whether both are appropriate for different aspects of the problem.
