# Surface Area and Volume INB Pages

I wanted to share my interactive notebook pages for my surface area and volume unit!  I like the pages that I used, but I think I will include a few more “drill and kill” pages next year.  Instead of teaching all of the surface area formulas and then all of the volume formulas, I taught all about prisms and then all about pyramids.

First, I started with this messy looking page about the parts of a prism.  I realized at the last minute that my students needed a refresher about parts of solids.  This page only had parts of prisms.  I also had a derivation of the formulas at the bottom of the page.  I cut and pasted the diagrams from my student’s textbook.

Next, we did a flip book with the vocabulary formally introduced and practice problems.  I taught the cylinder as a special case of the prism.  I did not give students a separate formula.  Many of them figured it out, but they didn’t have to use it.

Next, I did this page about composite volume.  The first problem has students add the volumes and the second problem has students subtract the volumes.

I did another messy looking page to describe the parts of pyramids.

Another flip book with the vocabulary and practice problems came next.  Again, I taught the cone as a special case of the pyramid.

Lastly, I taught the surface area and volume of spheres.
