Geometry; 5/22

We continued our study of prisms today by taking a look at prisms with a variety of base shapes.  We went over triangular, pentagonal, hexagonal and circular bases (cylinders!) today in our lesson.  The students then got started on their assignment.

Geometry; 5/18

We started our next unit of study today:  area and volume of solids.  Today's topic was how to work with prisms of different base areas.  We went over what a lateral area is and how to determine its value.  Finding the total area and volume of prisms were also new skills that we walked through together.
