Total Surface Area and Volume Investigation

              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 area 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.
