## Determine the surface area and volume of prisms, pyramids and cylinders. SPI 0606.4.5

1. Area and Volume of Solids - from Math for Morons Like Us, a ThinkQuest entry
2. How to Find the Surface Area and Volume of Prisms - from the TCS high school mathematics 'How-to Library'
3. Space Figures and Basic Solids - volume and surface area of several solid figures
4. Surface Area - Investigate area as the total area of the surface of a space figure. Derive surface area formulas for common three dimensional figures. Work through the lesson, experiment with the interactive figure and then answer ten questions. [caution: do not submit until you have selected answers to all of the questions] and
5. Surface Area and Volume - This activity allows a student to manipulate three-dimensional polyhedra to experiment with surface area and volume.
6. Surface Area Formulas - an index of area formulas at math.com - includes; Cube, Rectangular Prism, Prism, Sphere, Cylinder, and a reminder about Units
7. Surface Area of a Cube - instruction, practice and a quiz (they call it a game at AAA Math)
8. Surface Area of a Cylinder - Math Open Reference has instructions on how to calculate and also has two good interactive images to help your students understand
9. Surface Area of a Cylinder - instruction, practice and a quiz (they call it a game at AAA Math)
10. Surface Area of a Rectangular Prism - instruction, practice and a quiz (they call it a game at AAA Math)
11. Surface Area of Common Solids - Math Guide has surface area explanation for prisms, cylinders, pyramids, cones, and spheres. When students understand the explanations you might have them try one of the quizzes below:
