These scaffolded notes teach students about how multiple dimensions impact conversions. The front has students calculate and compare the perimeter, surface area, and volume of a rectangular prism and its doubled counterpart. The back has students calculate and compare the circumference, surface area, and volume of a cylinder and its tripled counterpart. Through these calculations, students recognize patterns that teach them that conversions are impacted once for each dimension of the measurement.
This works best if students work in partners, teachers break at the end of the front side to discuss as a class, and teachers hold a class discussion to go over the back and summarize the lesson.
