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.
