Ways of Thinking: Make Connections

  • Take notes about your classmates’ explanations of their net drawings and how they calculated surface area.

Hint:

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?
