Math Update Q3 – Week 5

This week in math class we will finish surface area and move on to the concept of volume. Surface Area quizzes were finished in class today. Look for those grades to be posted tomorrow. The next quiz on Volume will most likely occur next Monday with a unit Test to follow on Wednesday. There will be a study guide sent home for the test on Monday. Here are a few links for digital manipulation of 3D shapes involving volume and surface area (GREAT PRACTICE AT HOME!):
