**6.10d** The student will

d) **describe** and **determine** the volume and surface area of a rectangular prism.

**Bloom's Level:** Remember, Apply

*Adopted: 2009*

### BIG IDEAS

- I can make a tent by determining the square feet of canvas needed for 4 walls and floor, how much netting is needed for the door, and how long a zipper will surround the door opening.

- I will be
able to find area, perimeter, circumference, and surface area as appropriate in
various situations.

### UNDERSTANDING THE STANDARD

- Experiences in deriving the formulas for area,
perimeter, and volume using manipulatives such as tiles, one-inch cubes, adding
machine tape, graph paper, geoboards, or tracing paper, promote an
understanding of the formulas and facility in their use.†
- The perimeter of a polygon is the measure of the
distance around the polygon.
- Circumference is the distance around or
perimeter of a circle.
- The area of a closed curve is the number of
nonoverlapping square units required to fill the region enclosed by the curve.
- The perimeter of a square whose side measures
*s*is 4 times*s*(*P*= 4*s*), and its area is side times side (A = s^{2}). - The perimeter of a rectangle is the sum of twice
the length and twice the width [
*P*= 2*l*+ 2*w*, or*P*= 2(*l*+*w*)], and its area is the product of the length and the width (*A*=*lw*). - The value of pi (π) is the ratio of the
circumference of a circle to its diameter.
- The ratio of the circumference to the diameter
of a circle is a constant value, pi (π), which can be
approximated by measuring various sizes of circles.
- The fractional approximation of pi generally
used is 22/7.
- The decimal approximation of pi generally used
is 3.14.
- The circumference of a circle is computed using
*C*=*πd*or*C*= 2*πr*, where*d*is the diameter and*r*is the radius of the circle. - The area of a circle is computed using the
formula ,
*A*=*πr*where^{2}*r*is the radius of the circle. - The surface area of a rectangular prism is the
sum of the areas of all six faces (
*SA*= 2*lw*+ 2*lh*+ 2*wh*). - The volume of a rectangular prism is computed by
multiplying the area of the base, B, (length x width) by the height of the
prism (
*V*=*lwh*=*Bh*).

### ESSENTIALS

- What is the relationship between
area and surface area? Surface area is
calculated for a three-dimensional figure. It is the sum of the areas of the
two-dimensional surfaces that make up the three-dimensional figure.

**The student will use problem solving, mathematical
communication, mathematical reasoning, connections, and representations to**

6.10d1 **Solve **problems that require finding the surface area of a rectangular prism given a diagram of the prism with the necessary dimensions labeled.

6.10d2 **Solve **problems that require finding the volume of a rectangular prism given a diagram of the prism with the necessary dimensions labeled.
