This activity is designed to promote collaboration when reviewing surface area and volume. (Aligned to 8th grade Math TEKS)
Includes volume of cylinders, cones, and spheres.
Includes surface area of cylinders, rectangular prisms, and triangular prisms.
Students will be in groups of 4. Each student works their problem individually. The students then sum up their answers, and the group leader takes the sum up to the teacher to check. If the group is right, they go on to the next set. If the group is wrong, the students must go back and look at each group member's work to find and fix the mistake(s). I do this in high/low groups, and it works really well!
The last set is a challenge set. (Balloon border)
Answer key included!
