Objectives:  
1.    The students will learn the definitions of both lateral area and surface area of prisms and cylinders.
1.   
The students will use pre-printed graphic organizers to record properties, formulae, and other information for finding the lateral and surface area of prisms and cylinders.
2.     The students will apply information from their completed graphic organizer to solve problems concerning the lateral area and surface area of prisms and cylinders.

Procedures:
Before Class:
Download the following files and make copies as necessary:
        Inspiration files -- Lateral and Surface Area of Prisms and Cylinders Master
                                     Lateral and Surface Area of Prisms and Cylinders Student Note Sheet

        Word files -- Lateral and Surface Area Worksheet
                           

In Class:
1.    Hand out the Lateral and Surface Area of Prisms and Cylinders Student Sheet.
2.    Open the  Lateral and Surface Area of Prisms and Cylinders Master Inspiration file and present to the students the properties, formulae and other information needed for finding the lateral and surface area of prisms and cylinder.
2.    Have the students take notes and complete the appropriate sections of the Student Sheet provided to them.
3.    Hand out the Lateral and Surface Area Worksheets and have the students complete it.

Assessment:
Teacher observation
Completed student notes
Completed Lateral and Surface Area Worksheets

Modifications:  
Provide partially completed student sheets and/or worksheets
Work in pairs

Extensions:
Have students draw nets of various problems from worksheet and find lateral and surface areas using the sum of individual area instead of a formula
