This PowerPoint introduces the concept of using nets to find the surface area of 3D shapes by connecting several nets to their corresponding solid geometric shape.
It will help students to see how geometric solids are formed from nets and how to use those nets to both form a geometric solid and find its surface area.
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 18 slides are designed to present the information a bit at a time. They are not 18 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. Included in the PPT are also 2 slides at the end that can be printed for students to add the matching shapes used in the presentation into their own notes or interactive notebooks.
Designed to align well with Carnegie Learning Middle School Math Solution: Course 1 - Module 1, Topic 3, Lesson 2.
