[MA2015] (6) 24 :

24 ) Represent three-dimensional figures using nets made up of rectangles and triangles, and use the nets to find the surface area of these figures. Apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems. [6-G4]

In cooperative/collaborative groups, students will compare and contrast a two-dimensional pattern and a three-dimensional shape. Students will use a net to label and then construct a rectangular prism. Students will find the surface area of a rectangular prism. As a final performance task, students will create a message box.

The Illuminations tool called Geometric Solids is an excellent way to enhance a lesson and provide students with a deeper understanding of the properties of geometric properties. This tool will help students learn the relationships between vertices, faces, and edges. This tool can help students master finding the surface area of three-dimensional figures. This tool also demonstrates the relationship between the solid shapes and their nets.
