6.G.1.2

Find the volume of a right rectangular prism with fractional edge lengths by packing it with unit cubes of the appropriate unit fraction edge lengths, and show that the volume is the same as would be found by multiplying the edge lengths of the prism. Apply the formulas V = l w h and V = b h to find volumes of right rectangular prisms with fractional edge lengths in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.

6.G.1.4

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.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• calculate the volume of a right rectangular prism by reasoning about the number of unit cubes it takes to cover the first layer of the prism and the number of layers needed to fill the entire prism.
• extend their understanding of the volume of a right rectangular prism with integer side lengths to right rectangular prisms with fractional side lengths.
• apply the formula V = lwh to find the volume of a right rectangular prism and use the correct volume units when writing the answer.
• extend the volume formula for a right rectangular prism to the formula (V = Bh).
• develop, understand, and apply formulas for finding the volume of right rectangular prisms and cubes.
• apply volume formulas to find missing volumes and missing dimensions.

• match a net to correct prism or pyramid.
• draw a net for a given prism or pyramid.
• use a net to find the surface area of a given prism or pyramid.
• solve real-world problems that involve finding the surface area of prisms or pyramids
• use nets to determine the surface area of three-dimensional figures.
• determine that a right rectangular prism has six faces: top and bottom, front and back, and two sides.
• determine that surface area is obtained by adding the areas of all the faces.
• apply the formulas for surface area and volume to determine missing dimensions of aquariums and water level.

Classroom Activities

We will continue and wrap up our Geometry unit this week. We will also be completing test review for our District Assessment (2-15-18)

Assignments Due

There are no assignments due this week as we have our District Assessment on Thursday. Students are encouraged to complete the following IXL assignments to practice the new concepts and be ready for the DIA.

IXL:

FF3, FF6, FF15, AA4, Z8

Additional Resources

If additional help is needed, students are encouraged to view a lesson regarding a given topic on Khan Academy. This website is free and provides both video instruction as well as practice problems. 

Students are able to complete additional practice on both MathSpace and IXL.
