Lesson Plan

Math 9: Shape and Space (3-D Objects and 2-D Shapes)
Determine the surface area of composite 3-D objects to solve problems. [C, CN, PS, R, V]

5 mins
9C Review cylinder surface area (show cylinder unrolling animation)
9B Take in Cylinder Surface Area Worksheet
Issues with HW?

Lesson: Go through the following examples. Do each face separately and then add them all up.

Ex. 1


Ex. 2


After Lesson:
9C - Assign questions from Pg. 34 #15-17 for HW/review
9B - Assign questions from Pg. 35 #18 for HW/review Composite SA WS as well
Hand back quizzes
Extension: What is the surface area (in terms of the variables)?
First: give them an easier example (cube)
Tell students to add up the sides and
subtract areas of overlap.

Ans. SA = 2a+2b+c+2e-2d

For students that are struggling:
Show students the cylinder paper fold out so they can see the different shapes and areas (two
circles and one large rectangle).
Explain to students what 2 ! really is ( ! a square with side length r, pi is how many times that
box can fit into the circle and the 2 is because there are two circles).
Tell students that surface area is the sides that you can physically touch or could paint.

Resources Needed:
MathLinks 9 Textbook
Net for cylinder and rectangular prism

Objectives of the Lesson:
For students to solve for surface area of cylinders
For students to understand where the formulas are derived from (not getting into too much
To promote problem solving
