Total Surface Area of Cylinders

Students learn how to calculate the total surface area of cylinders using net drawings.  As learning progresses they find the surface area of composite cylindrical shapes.

The start of the lesson is used to recap finding the area of circumference of circles in terms of pi.  At the end of the lesson students are challenged to find the total surface area of a composite shape.

Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to calculate the surface area of a cylinder as a multiple of pi.
  • Most students should be able to calculate the surface area of a cylinder as a multiple of pi and decimal.
  • Some students should be able to calculate the surface area of cylindrical shapes.

Teaching Mathematics for a Growth Mindset

Inspiring students to enjoy maths and feel the success that comes with attempting a difficult challenge is why I teach.  The feeling of success is addictive.  The more students experience it the more they want it and the further out of their comfort zone they are willing to go to get more of it.  Teaching […]

Equation of Straight Line Graphs

To find the equation of straight line graphs students need to calculate the gradient using two pairs of coordinates and the intercept which is the y value of where it crosses the vertical axis.  Examiner’s reports of past exam questions show students are more able to find the intercept of a straight line than they […]
