Area, Surface Area And Volume Math Games

In this series of games, your students will learn to solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, volume, and surface area. The Area, Surface Area And Volume learning objective — based on CCSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research. This learning objective directly references 7.G.B.6 as written in the common core national math standards.

Concepts Covered

A unit of volume, a cube with a side length of 1 unit, is called a unit cube. Side lengths can be fractions and mixed numbers. Recognize volume as an attribute of a solid figure. Use standard units of measurement cubic cm, cubic in, cubic ft, and any unit that the problem presents. The formula for volume can be derived as length times width times height, or the area of the base times the height. Find volume or any of the edges by manipulating the formula for volume to find the other.

Find the total volume of solid figures composed of two or more triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, cubes, and right prisms. Find the surface area of two- and three-dimensional objects composed of triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, cubes, and right prisms. 

A prism is a three-dimensional figure with a connection of two parallel planes with a polygon base. A right rectangular prism has a polygon base and any cross-section parallel to the base is a copy of the base and the connected planes are perpendicular.
