This product contains teacher and classroom tested notes (with full answer key) for real world applications of Surface Area and Volume in a Geometry classroom. These word problems require students to carefully select the correct formula or break a solid figure into its component parts. Some questions also require students to think logically about surfaces we would (or would not) use when calculating surface area in a real world problem. These word problems use applications of surface area and/or volume including an orange (sphere and hemisphere), an ice cream cone (cone and sphere), a bird house (cylinder and cone), and a barn (rectangular and triangle prisms). These are great problem solving examples which provide rich real-world context for surface area and volume.
