Total Surface Area of Cylinders

              Total Surface Area of Cylinders

              Students learn how to calculate the total surface area of cylinders using net drawings.

              Later, as learning progresses they find the surface area of composite cylindrical shapes.

              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.
