Surface Area of Cuboids (Foundation version)

Surface Area of Cuboids (Foundation version)

THIS LESSON REQUIRES 1 SMALL CEREAL PACKET PER PAIR OF PUPILS COSTING AROUND £3 FOR 8 PACKETS. This lesson is for KS3 students and for KS4 students planning to take the Foundation paper. The lesson starts with students measuring the dimensions of the small cereal packet. They then cut open the packets and measure the dimensions of the resulting net and its six faces. Students move on to finding the surface area of a cuboid from a drawing and finally from the dimensions alone. Included are solutions to all questions asked of students.
