Students are constantly confusing surface area and volume.

This product includes 20 situations cards, 32 calculation cards (in two forms - you can either sort pre-calculated cards, or have your students complete the calculations on their own) , and a response page for accountability. Two different answers keys also included.

Students will read, decide and sort each card into the appropriate category. Ideal for partner discussions, math centers, independent practice, or small group.

Also included in product - an identical, "less ink" version that can be printed in grey scare or in B&W on colored paper.
