Essential question is the glass half full or half empty
Essential Question:Is the glass half full or half empty?


  • 1.02Use length, area, and volume of geometric figures to solveproblems. Include arc length, area of sectors of circles; lateral area, surface area, and volume of three-dimensional figures; and perimeter, area, and volume of composite figures.


  • Unit Questions:

  • What is volume?

  • What is the relationship between surface area and volume?

  • How are two-dimensional measurement concepts used to calculate measures of three-dimensional figures?

  • How could knowing the area of a shape help you find the volume?

  • Content Questions:

    How do you find the volume of a prism?

    How do you find the volume of a cylinder?

    How do you find the volume of a pyramid?

Unit summary
Unit Summary

  • Students will investigate the surface area and volume of solids. First, they will learn to distinguish polyhedral from other solids and to classify polyhedral. Students will use nets to help them explore the surface area of prisms, and use proportions involving circles to identify the surface area of cones. They will then develop methods for finding the volume of prisms and cylinders. Students will also find the volume of pyramids and cones. After learning to find the surface area and volume of spheres, students will investigate similar solids, including scale factors and how surface area and volume relate to the dimensions of similar solids.

Unit Summary

  • The student will also create a brochure highlighting everything they learned from this unit on volume.

Project based learning
Project- Based Learning

  • Students will design and construct a geometric models of their of dream home using as many polyhedrons as possible. They will calculate the surface area and volume of each room. They will also solve real-life problems related to their dream house. For example, how many cans of paint would you need to paint the kitchen? The students will also create a magazine layout of their dream home for “Good Housekeeping” magazine.
