This unit consists of a series of lessons on surface area and volume, as concepts, and realized in examples from everyday life. The lessons are similar in the activities they represent. All show awareness to the underlying theory and also to the interests of students, who will enjoy the opportunity to measure and speculate. An excellent unit.
