#### Build-A-Math

For Teachers 6th - 8th
We can't build our dream house yet, but we can definitely build a model. Scholars use floor plans to build models of their dream homes. Cardboard is as good as any material for this purpose.

#### Kangaroo Hop

For Students 2nd - 3rd Standards
Scholars play against three other participants to show what they know about geometric figures. Starting at the beginning, kangaroos jump from shape to shape to match the figure to the displayed word and make their way to the finish line.

#### Geometry

For Students 6th Standards
Shape one's understanding of geometry using the resource. The sixth of seven chapters in 6th Grade Math focuses on geometry principles. Future mathematicians learn to find the area of parallelograms, trapezoids, triangles, and other...

#### Alpaca Lunch

For Teachers 9th - 12th Standards
Feed the need for knowledge. Future mathematicians first consider how the lateral area of a rectangular prism relates to its volume. They then design a container for alpaca food that has the maximum volume possible from a given sheet of...

For Teachers 9th - 12th Standards
Using the net of a can, learners develop formulas for the surface area and volume of a cylinder. They then apply their formulas to solve problems about a cylindrical container used to disperse confetti.

For Teachers 9th - 12th Standards
The coal is mined. Now what? Scholars design a coal silo that stores mined earth using at least two different three-dimensional shapes. They calculate the volume, determine the amount of mined earth produced in a day, and find the amount...

#### Exploring Coal Pillar Mining

For Teachers 9th - 12th Standards
Coal mines can be a gold mine of math applications. After reading some basic information on coal mining, learners draw blueprints of a coal pillar in the shape of a composite figure. They find the volume of material from the coal pillar...

#### Swimming Pool Dilemma

For Teachers 9th - 12th Standards
Different shape, same volume—that's quite a challenge! Scholars design a pool for an imaginary client using three-dimensional figures. They must then create a second pool for another client with the same volume, but using different shapes.
Performance

#### Build-a-Toy

For Teachers 8th Standards
Don't toy with using a fun lesson. Scholars design new toys and then create scale drawings. They determine the volume and surface area of the toys, and then research prices of raw materials to estimate the manufacturing costs.

#### Green Acres is the Place to Be!

For Teachers 9th - 12th Standards
Nurture a love of math and farming at the same time. Pupils apply geometry concepts, such as surface area and volume of three-dimensional shapes and similarity ratios, to farming contexts. They consider the dimensions of bales of hay,...

#### Surface Area and Volume

For Teachers 9th - 12th Standards
Who knew there were pyramids in China? Learners apply surface area and volume formulas to several different real-world situations. They calculate the volume and surface area of an aquarium, an ice cream cone, and Egyptian and Chinese...

#### Fun with Solids

For Teachers 9th - 12th Standards
Unlike a volcano, the lesson won't blow up in your face. Young mathematicians use dried beans to discover the relationship between the volumes of cones and cylinders and to write a formula for the volume of a cone. They then research...
