Title | 3-D Solid Geometry |

Brief description | This 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. |

Purpose | Practice problems; Concept development |

Topic(s) | Volume; Area |

Type of activity | Student, either individual or group |

Where work is done | In class |

Time required | 10 to 30 minutes |

Technology needed | Simple four-function calculator |

Suggestions for implementation | This 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. |
