Math Bowl is a new series that I have created to help keep your students "on a roll" in math! (Cheesy, I know!) In this activity, students compete against each other either individually or with a partner as they work to solve word problems. The objective of this game is for students to achieve a “strike” (knock down all of the bowling pins). The best part about this resource is that it is self correcting!
This resource includes 10 Task Cards. Students will practice the skill of determining the total surface area of rectangular and triangular prisms. The nets are provided as well as a couple of 3D figures. Answers are provided on the bowling pins for students to cross out (aka "knock down") as they solve each problem. If you want to make it competitive for students, the first person that achieves a strike is the winner.
Instructions/Ideas for Implementation
7.9D solve problems involving the lateral and total surface area of a rectangular prism, rectangular pyramid, triangular prism, and triangular pyramid by determining the area of the shape's net
