This is an introductory project-based lesson. It is assumed that background knowledge of vocabulary, procedural steps, and concept have been previously instructed. In this project, students will create a square-based pyramid net that would represent their actual tent. Then, they will need to figure out how much fabric that they will need in order to cover their tent. Extensions are built into this activity that would allow the students to practice / explore skills with decimals, percents, and ratios.

In this project, students will create videos that describe what surface area is, what algorithmic steps are needed to find surface area, and finally, they will show how to find the surface area of a polyhedron. Note: This lesson assumes that students have had previous lessons on surface area. This lesson is meant to be sort of a summative assessment tool in which students show their conceptual and procedural fluency of surface area.

Students to explore various geometric solids and their properties in this student interactive, from Illuminations. Students can virtually manipulate and color each solid to investigate properties such as the number of faces, edges, and vertices. Students can explore tetrahedrons, cubes, octahedrons, dodecahedrons, icosahedrons, and irregular polyhedrons by toggling between solid and net to see different views of the selected shape.

Lesson OverviewStudents find the area of a parallelogram by rearranging it to form a rectangle. They find the area of a trapezoid by putting together two copies of it to form a parallelogram. By doing these activities and by analyzing the dimensions and areas of several examples of each figure, students develop and understand area formulas for parallelograms and trapezoids.Key ConceptsA parallelogram is a quadrilateral with two pairs of parallel sides. The base of a parallelogram can be any of the four sides. The height is the perpendicular distance from the base to the opposite side.A trapezoid is a quadrilateral with exactly one pair of parallel sides. The bases of a trapezoid are the parallel sides. The height is the perpendicular distance between the bases.You can cut a parallelogram into two pieces and reassemble them to form a rectangle. Because the area does not change, the area of the rectangle is the same as the area of the parallelogram. This gives the parallelogram area formula A = bh.You can put two identical trapezoids together to form a parallelogram with the same height as the trapezoid and a base length equal to the sum of the base lengths of the trapezoid. The area of the parallelogram is (b1 + b2)h, so the area of the trapezoid is one-half of this area. Thus, the trapezoid area formula is A = 12(b1 + b2)h.Goals and Learning ObjectivesDevelop and explore the formula for the area of a parallelogram.Develop and explore the formula for the area of a trapezoid.
