This file contains a powerpoint with 10 questions covering total and lateral surface area of various 3D shapes. Some of the questions are multiple choice, while others are open ended. These 10 questions can be used in a lot of different ways! Some ideas include:
-Pair students up. Let a group pick the question number they want to start with. Every pair works out the question on whiteboards or ¼ size color coded pieces of paper (makes score keeping easy). Pairs that get the correct answer, get a point. The pair with the most points at the end wins!
-Print out the questions (without the answers) in the handout view. Cut the questions out and place them in a bucket. Pair students up and have each pair select one question out of the bucket to work out. When the pair can show you the correct answer with their work shown, they will return the question to the bucket and retrieve a new one.
-Print out the cards (without the answers) and make them into stations that the students can work out in a pair.
-Pair students up and have them sit back to back. Let a group pick the question number they want to start with. Every person works out the question individually on ¼ size color coded pieces of paper (makes score keeping easy). Pairs with both partners arriving at the correct answer earn a point. The pair with the most points at the end wins!
-For more “active” classes, print the questions (without the answers) in the handout view and hand them out as a packet.
**Notes: I typically give my students 3-4 minutes per question.
Also, don’t forget to have their formula chart handy!*
