6.2.2.5 Understand the concept of surface area and find the surface area of 3D shapes in an efficient way

Understand that prisms can have a different number of faces and, therefore, the surface area can be the sum of a different number of areas.

Understand that the surface area of a prism is the sum of the area of all the faces and not just the visible ones.

Understand how to use the correct dimensions to calculate the area of 2D shapes.

There is no standard formula for calculating the surface area of a prism.

The units of surface area are squared.

Solve familiar and unfamiliar problems, including real-life applications.

Solve problems where there is more than one answer and there are elements of experimentation, investigation, checking, reasoning, proof, etc.


6.2.3.1 Be aware that all prisms have two congruent polygonal parallel faces (bases) with parallelogram faces joining the corresponding vertices of the bases

6.2.3.2 Use the constant cross-sectional area property of prisms and cylinders to determine their volume
