We began our unit on 3D today with a review of vocabulary and a focus on prisms, learning how to calculate volume and surface area. Do you remember the definition of parallelepiped? Alysha H. does, as do her co-geometers Saeed L. and Valerie H. Good work, guys - thinking about Geometry outside the box of the classroom!
I don't know why everyone was SO CHATTY today - it was like an epidemic. Maybe someone can clue me in, but you know I am counting down until June 17- and I want EVERYONE passing that exam!
Another note about HW #44 - some of the problems talk about triangular prisms, and we didn't practice solving any problems with prisms whose bases were not rectangles. These problems may present a real challenge to you, but give them a try.
VOLUME of a PRISM = AREA OF THE BASE x HEIGHT
SURFACE AREA of a PRISM = THE AREA OF ALL OF THE FACES ADDED TOGETHER
See you on the runway!
