              Total Surface Area of Prisms

              Students learn how to calculate the surface area of prisms firstly by considering the net of a cuboid and later moving on to 3D models of complex prisms.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate the total surface area of a cuboid.
              • Most students should be able to calculate the total surface area of a prism.
              • Some students should be able to solve problems in context involving the total surface area of prisms
