Algebra Students Learn About Surface Area
Posted on 11/14/2018
8th grade Algebra students enjoyed a hands on experience during a lesson on surface area. Students brought in boxes of different sizes from home and by opening certain edges were able to create a "net".  This allowed them to see all the "faces" of their prism and to measure and calculate the surface area.  This study helps students to be able to picture the faces of a three dimensional figure from a two dimensional drawing.
