GEOM 1 | Lesson 4: Application of Area vs. Volume


Learning Intentions (Objectives)

a) Students will decide area or volume is the appropriate calculation and answer for various problems.

b) Students will apply the formulas you developed without referencing them.

Rationale (Diagnostic Results)

You often do not remember common geometric formulas such as the area of a trapezoid, parallelogram, circle, etc. You often do not remember common geometric formulas for the volume of a cone, cylinder, sphere, or rectangular prism. You often don’t draw pictures to help them solve problems. You may have difficulty identifying both the objectives and constraints of problems. You struggle with de- and re-contextualizing a problem. You may struggle with converting 3D problems into simpler 2D ones.
