In this engaging activity, students will calculate the surface area of various structures, including tents and gazebos by looking at the dimensions provided in the image. The problem statements are:
This hands-on exercise not only reinforces the fundamental principles of geometry but also equips students with practical problem-solving skills, allowing them to navigate the complexities of real-world objects.
Develop a deep understanding of calculating the surface area of 3D objects. Specifically, students will learn to apply geometry concepts and formulas to find the surface area of complex structures, such as tents and gazebos, by using the provided dimensions.
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.
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.
