Objectives:
1. The students will learn the definitions of both lateral
area and surface area of prisms and cylinders.
1. The students will use preprinted 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
