              Total Surface Area and Volume Investigation

              Students investigate possible surface areas given a fixed volume of a prism.  As learning progresses they consider how to extend the surface area to infinity by considering non-integer lengths.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate a Total Surface Area when given a cuboid’s volume.
              • Most students should be able to calculate multiple Total Surface Areas when given a fixed volume.
              • Some students should be able to calculate the multiple total surface areas when given a fixed volume of a compound prism
