## Monday, March 3, 2014 - Surface Area of Solid Figures

**Bell Work**- Complete Countdown Week 24 located in the Holt textbook before the Table of Contents.

**Classwork**- The Tangram Project and Book of Solid Figures Project were returned. Common misconceptions were discussed. Students who did not turn in projects received a 0 and were encouraged to come to tutoring, look at student samples posted in class, and complete the projects for a late grade. Students who have not gotten their project rubrics signed still need to do so. Afterwards, students finished "Surface Area Practice - Set C." The work modeled should assist them with their homework.

**Homework**-

**"GADOE Task: Finding Surface Area" is due Thursday, March 6th**. The following timeline for completing the 10 problems was given: Monday - #1-4, Tuesday - #5 using complete sentences and vocabulary, Wednesday - #6-10. Students created an answer sheet for this work. They were instructed to identify the solid, construct its net and use it to show the area of each face for questions 1-4 and 6-10. Calculations for the areas of each face should be shown and should correspond with the surface area of the solid figure.

**Classwork**- 3rd, 4th and 6th period worked in small groups to complete Set D. They were given 20 minutes to find the surface area of 5 solid figures. Students assessed their own work and turned in Set C and D for grading. Set C will be graded for completion (20%) and Set D will be graded for accuracy (30%). 5th period finished Set C through guided practice and began working on Set D.

**Unit 5 - Surface Area and Volume Test this Friday, March 7th**

## Wednesday, March 5, 2014 - Surface Area of Solid Figures

**Bell Work**- "Big 20 Form A" problems 6-10. These questions review concepts from the past leading up to the present. This will be graded, kept in class and returned after two sets are completed. For now, students will be assessed in the 20% weight category on how they complete and correct their mistakes. Starting in Quarter 4, these assignments will count as weekly quizzes in the 30% weight category.

**Homework -**

**"GADOE Task: Finding Surface Area" is due Thursday, March 6th**. Students should finish #6-10 tonight. Organized work should be turned in tomorrow using the student created worksheet. Students who do not follow directions will have to resubmit their work in the instructed format for a late grade. Please see Monday for a copy of this assignment.

**Unit 5 - Surface Area and Volume Test this Friday, March 7th**

## Thursday, March 6, 2014 - Surface Area of Solid Figures and Volume of Rectangular Prisms

**GADOE Task: Finding Surface Area #1-10**was collected at the beginning of class. This assignment will be weighted in the 30% category.

**Bell Work**- "Big 20 Form A" problems 11-15.

**Classwork - 3rd, 4th and 6th**

**period**self assessed Surface Area Practice - Set E that was completed Wednesday in class. They earned 20 points for each problem they got right, which was recorded in my notes. For homework, students are to complete the corresponding question in

**Set F**for the problems missed on Set E. For example, if the student missed #1, surface area of a rectangular prism, he or she must complete #1 from Set F correctly to earn 20 points. A total of 100 points can be earned from combining correctly solved problems from E and F.

**All Classes - GADOE Task: "How Many Ways"**- Using centimeter cubes, students created different rectangular prisms with a volume of 24 cubic centimeters to understand the volume formula for rectangular prisms: V = bh. The "b" in this formula represents the base of the solid figure that defines the shape. For a rectangular prism, the base is a rectangle. For a triangular prism, the base is a triangle. For a pentagonal prism, the base is a triangle. And for a cylinder, the base is a circle. By finding the area of the base, you are defining how many cubes can fit on the base of the solid (the first layer of cubes). Multiplying this by the height gives you how many cubes fill up the solid by adding up all the layers of cubes.

We have encountered several volume questions through previous warm-ups during out weekly Countdown bell work assignments. This lesson hopefully solidified why we multiply the length by the width, and finally by the height.
