Volume and Surface Area of Rectangular Prisms

Who is this lesson designed for l.jpg

Who is this lesson designed for?

  • This is a math lesson, which is designed for sixth grade students

  • The lesson will teach them the difference between the surface area and volume of rectangular prisms


Links l.jpg

Links

  • The links below are links to some other great resources for this subject:

    • My Web Page This is the web page that I created with the same subject material. Most of the same information is covered on the PowerPoint as is on the website, but it has a different format

    • Formulas For the more advanced students, this is a webpage with many other formulas for the volumes and surface areas of shapes other than rectangular prisms

    • Review This is a review of the formulas for volume and surface area. They give examples, but the information comes very quickly, so make sure to use this only as a review

    • Game This is a game that helps you practice finding the volume of different cubes based on the measurements that they give.


Volume l.jpg

Volume

  • The formula for the volume of a rectangular prism is:

    LENGTH x WIDTH x HEIGHT

Example:

In the figure to the right, the area

would be A x B x C.

For a more advanced explanation of volume, click here.


Surface area l.jpg

Surface Area

  • The formula for the Surface Area of a rectangular prism is a little more complex. In the figure below, the formula would be:ab + ab + ac + ac + bc + bc

To get a better understanding of the formula

for surface area, click here.


The difference l.jpg

The Difference

  • Now that we have seen what volume is and what surface area is, can you tell the difference?

  • Sometimes it is tricky to tell which one you are looking for: volume or surface area. Click here for some pointers on what things to consider when deciding whether you want to find the volume or the surface area.


Questions l.jpg

Questions?

  • That was a lot of material to cover in such a short PowerPoint, but I hope my extra links helped a little! If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me!
