Stage 1 – Identify Desired Results
Content Standards:

Students will understand how to determine the volume and surface area of solid figures. They will understand and use the customary and metric systems of measurement to measure quantities efficiently and to represent volume and surface area appropriately. M6M3. Students will determine the volume of fundamental solid figures (right rectangular prisms, cylinders, pyramids and cones). a. Determine the formula for finding the volume of fundamental solid figures. b. Compute the volumes of fundamental solid figures, using appropriate units of measure. c. Estimate the volumes of simple geometric solids. d. Solve application problems involving the volume of fundamental solid figures. M6M4. Students will determine the surface area of solid figures (right rectangular prisms and cylinders). a. Find the surface area of right rectangular prisms and cylinders using manipulatives and constructing nets. b. Compute the surface area of right rectangular prisms and cylinders using formulae. c. Estimate the surface areas of simple geometric solids. d. Solve application problems involving surface area of right rectangular prisms and cylinders.

Understandings

Students will understand that:

Approximate volumes of simple geometric solids may be found using estimation. Formulas may be used to determine the volume of fundamental solid figures. Approximate units of measure should be used when computing the volumes of fundamental solid figures. Approximate surface area of simple geometric solids may be found using estimation. Formulas may be used to compute the surface area of right rectangular prisms and cylinders.
