Coverings & Surroundings
In this unit we learned about perimeter, area, surface area, and volume.
We used the bumper car ride floor plans and storm shelter floor plans to find perimeter and area. We used nets to find the surface area of any 3D shape. Finally, we filled an empty box with centimeter cubes in order to find the volume.
What is perimeter?
What is area?
Area of Rectangle & Square = Length x Width
Area of Triangle = Base x Height /2
Area of Parallelogram = Base x Height
What is surface area?
Surface Area of Pyramid = (L x W) + 4 (B x H /2)
Surface Area of Rectangular Prism = 2(LxW) + 2(LxW) + 2(LxW)
What is volume?
Volume of Rectangular Prism = L x W x H
