Ways of Thinking: Make Connections
- Take notes about your classmates’ explanations of their net drawings and how they calculated surface area.
As your classmates present, ask questions such as:
- Explain your strategy for creating a net.
- Do you think it’s easier to determine the surface area from the net or from the three-dimensional figure?
- How could you check whether you found the correct surface area?
- How do you know that your net accurately represents the prism?
