Ways of Thinking: Make Connections
Take notes about your classmates’ thinking concerning the surface areas and volumes of the different prisms.
As your classmates present, ask questions such as:
- How did you determine the side lengths for each prism?
- How did you determine the total surface area?
- Explain your thinking about how adding a top and bottom to a prism affects its area.
- How is your explanation about how to predict the volume of a prism similar to the last explanation we heard? How is it different?
