You will need to create an assignment (may be an individual or group assignment), that has the student
create a geometric shape using length, area and volume (shape must be at a minimum of 3 units by 3 units
by 3 units)
A
1. The students must measure the length, width and height of the object. Be creative they may use a
ruler, tape measure, or simple the number of blocks (think gridded paper). The geometric shape must
be made so the student my count and verify the measurement.
2. The student must calculate the area (units squared) of the Geometric shape, you may use one face or
the total surface area. The student must have a method to count the units to verify their calculation.
3. The student must calculate the volume (units cubed) of the Geometric shape. The student must have a
method to count the units to verify their calculation.
Rules:
1. You may give the students "mats", or have the students create them from an example. You may provide
the students with gridded paper. Or ruled paper.
2. You may provide the stunt with premade objects if you wish (you must define them clearly).
3. You may not use mats for cube or cube shaped objects.
4. You must provide a drawing or picture of the geometric shape with the required markings ( with your
test submission).
5. You may not use or have the students create a Rubik’s cube (see example below).
i need some pictures and shapes or drowing to explain
Example:
Give the students a set of mats for a 1 in cube.
The student will cut out and glue the cubes together, the stack the cubes 3 wide by 3 high and 3 columns
deep.
The student will then cut out 9 "1 inch" squares of 6 different colors provided by teacher.
The students will glue the same color squares on the 9 front faces, repeat with a different color on the
right, left, back , top and bottom. Note we have created a rubik’s cube.
A
Have the student measure (with a standard ruler) the length, width, and height of the geometric shape.
Correct answer is 3 inches for each and because the cube are 1 inch cubed, the students can count and
verify the measure is 3 inches.
Have the students calculate the surface area, then count the 1-inch squares they pasted on the shape to
verify 54 square inches.
Have the students calculate the volume, The students may then count the cubes that make up the cube to
verify the 27 inches cubed calculation.
