This engaging, ready to print resource allows students to demonstrate their knowledge of solving equations in a fun way! Students will select 16 teams (16 of their classmates, 16 professional sports teams, 16 teachers, etc.) to compete in a Surface Area and Volume Tournament Challenge. The 16 teams are simply for fun and to increase student buy-in as the winner has been predetermined. This is an assignment that can be completed individually, in partners, or a small group. There are four separate rounds within the tournament.

Four Different Tournament Rounds
Round 1: Volume of Prisms
Round 2: Volume of Pyramids
Round 3: Surface Area of Prisms
Round 4: Surface Area of Pyramids

What's Included in this Product?
- Teacher directions
- Blank tournament bracket
- 30 different surface area and volume problems
- Answer Key that shows the correct winners for each round

Please download the preview for more information. Please note that this product uses prisms and pyramids only. It does not contain any cylinders, cones, spheres, etc.

Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, volume and surface area of two- and three-dimensional objects composed of triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, cubes, and right prisms.
Represent three-dimensional figures using nets made up of rectangles and triangles, and use the nets to find the surface area of these figures. Apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.
Find the volume of a right rectangular prism with fractional edge lengths by packing it with unit cubes of the appropriate unit fraction edge lengths, and show that the volume is the same as would be found by multiplying the edge lengths of the prism. Apply the formulas 𝘝 = 𝘭 𝘸 𝘩 and 𝘝 = 𝘣 𝘩 to find volumes of right rectangular prisms with fractional edge lengths in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.
