In this activity, students will use proportions to solve problems with similar solids. This ladder activity is a great alternative to a worksheet. Students will cut the problems apart along the lines and work the card labeled "Start" and find their answer on the top of another card. They tape their cards together until a chain is formed.
There are 11 problems. Students will have to switch between dimensions, surface area, and volume to solve the problems. Make sure these problems are appropriate for your students - download the preview and look at the thumbnails to see problem types.
This activity can be completed individually or in pairs. An answer key and instructions are provided.
