Title3-D Solid Geometry
Brief descriptionThis is a worksheet that used solid geometry applications to explore volume and surface area. There are three shapes designed in a solid modeling program, and all dimensions are given.
PurposePractice problems; Concept development
Topic(s)Volume; Area
Type of activityStudent, either individual or group
Where work is doneIn class
Time required10 to 30 minutes
Technology neededSimple four-function calculator
Suggestions for implementationThis worksheet is very visual, but some of the problems can present perspective issues. The first problem shows a triangular prism with all the relevant dimensions. The second problem is just a comparison of unit volume to a larger similar object. The final problem is a hollow rectangular prism that asks students to find the outside volume, inside volume, and the difference between them.
