This PowerPoint introduces 3D shapes by connecting them to polygons and goes on to explain volume and using the formula to find the volume of a cube and of a rectangular prism.
It will help students to see how geometric solids are formed from polygonal faces and provide practice in finding volume.
The presentation is designed to be used to introduce the topic or at the end of a unit to summarize the concepts. The teacher can present the PPT so that the students can take notes, have a class discussion, or both. Slides can be printed for students to put into interactive notebooks as well.
Additionally, this file can be uploaded to Google Classroom as a Google Slides document and viewed on "Present" mode if you would like students to use this individually or even at home for front-loading or summarizing a lesson.
The 14 slides are designed to present the information a bit at a time. They are not 14 unique slides, but rather use animation to add information a piece at a time so that teachers can present the information without overwhelming the students with too much, too quickly.
Designed to align well with Carnegie Learning Middle School Math Solution: Course 1 - Module 1, Topic 3, Lesson 1
