TITLE : Unit 09: Measurement of Three-Dimensional Figures SUGGESTED DURATION : 10 days

Unit Overview

Introduction
This unit bundles student expectations that address perimeter, area, and volume of two- and three-dimensional figures and composite figures, including effects of proportional and non-proportional dimensional changes. Concepts are incorporated into both non-contextual and real-world problem situations. According to the Texas Education Agency, mathematical process standards including application, tools and techniques, communication, representations, relationships, and justifications should be integrated (when applicable) with content knowledge and skills so that students are prepared to use mathematics in everyday life, society, and the workplace.

Prior to this Unit
In Grades 2 – 5, students solved problems related to perimeter or regular and irregular figures, including finding missing side length(s). In Grade 6, students determine solutions for problems involving the area of rectangles, parallelograms, trapezoids, and triangles. In Grade 7, students determine the circumference and area of circles and the area of composite figures. In Grade 8, students model the effect on linear and area measurements of dilated two-dimensional shapes. In Geometry Unit 07, students studied the relationships of two- and three-dimensional figures. In Geometry Unit 08, students were introduced to regular polygons and determining the perimeter, circumference, and area of two-dimensional figures, including composite figures.

During this Unit
Students explore surface area using concrete objects and nets of prisms, pyramids, cylinders and cones and make connections to formulas for lateral and total surface area for prisms, pyramids, cylinders and cones. Students are introduced to the formula for surface area of a sphere. Students apply formulas to determine lateral and total surface area of prisms, pyramids, cylinders, cones, and spheres from diagrams and attribute information, including composite figures. Students apply formulas to determine lateral and total surface area of prisms, pyramids, cylinders, cones, and spheres in real-world problem situations with appropriate measures, including effects of proportional and non-proportional linear dimension changes. Students explore volume using concrete models and investigate the differences between cylinders/cones and prisms/pyramids with congruent bases and heights and make connections to formulas for volume. Students are introduced to the formula for volume of a sphere. Students apply formulas to determine volume of prisms, pyramids, cylinders, cones, and spheres from diagrams and attribute information, including composite figures. Students apply formulas to determine lateral and total surface area and volume of prisms, pyramids, cylinders, cones, spheres, and composite figures in real-world problem situations with appropriate measures, including effects of proportional and non-proportional linear dimension changes.

After this Unit
In Unit 11, students will apply concepts of two- and three-dimensional measurement to complete an engineering design project. The concepts in this unit will also be applied in subsequent mathematics courses.

Research
According to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (2009) in Focus in High School Mathematics: Reasoning and Sense Making, the key elements of reasoning and sense making with geometry must include multiple representations of functions. In this unit, students gather data from geometric figures, and organize this information into tables, graphs or diagrams. This leads to the development of symbolic expressions and verbal descriptions. A variety of representations helps make relationships more understandable to more students than working with symbolic representations alone. These approaches serve as the basis for this unit on polygons and circle. At the conclusion of this unit, students are asked to create graphic organizers. TxCCRS cites many skills related to the communication and representation of mathematical ideas. The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (2000) said that all students in grades 9 – 12 should explore relationships in two-dimensional geometric figures, make and test conjectures about two-dimensional geometric figures, and solve problems involving two-dimensional geometric figures. According to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (2012), using diagrams and constructions to interpret and communicate geometric relationships is essential in geometry. Using definitions of figures to characterize figures in terms of their properties is another essential in geometry. In geometry, the “proving process involves working with diagrams, variation and invariance, conjectures, and definitions.” (p. 92)

MISCONCEPTIONS / UNDERDEVELOPED CONCEPTS

Misconceptions:

  • Some students may think that the same scale factor is used for surface area and volume of proportional dimensional change as is used for the linear dimensional change instead of using the scale factor squared or the scale factor cubed, respectively.
  • Some students may confuse the slant height and altitude of the pyramid and cone.
  • Some students may think that surface area means only lateral surface area instead of total surface area.

Underdeveloped Concepts:

  • Students may not be able to correctly identify the face or base of a three-dimensional figure.
  • Students may not know how to find the area of a two-dimensional figure when finding the area of the base for a three-dimensional figure
  • Students may not have a clear understanding of scale factor.
  • Some students may not know how to determine how many times larger one three-dimensional figure is when compared to another three-dimensional figure when all side lengths have changed proportionality.
  • Some students confuse total surface area with volume.
  • Some students may think that when calculating total surface area of a three-dimensional, composite figure that all surfaces are included in the total surface area (e.g., When given a three-dimensional figure composed of a cylinder and two hemispheres, the top and bottom of the cylinder and the bottom of each hemisphere are not included in the total surface area.).
  • Students may not be able to accurately draw a three-dimensional figure.

Unit Vocabulary

ELPS.c.2 The ELL listens to a variety of speakers including teachers, peers, and electronic media to gain an increasing level of comprehension of newly acquired language in all content areas. ELLs may be at the beginning, intermediate, advanced, or advanced high stage of English language acquisition in listening. In order for the ELL to meet grade-level learning expectations across the foundation and enrichment curriculum, all instruction delivered in English must be linguistically accommodated (communicated, sequenced, and scaffolded) commensurate with the student's level of English language proficiency. The student is expected to:
ELPS.c.2A distinguish sounds and intonation patterns of English with increasing ease
ELPS.c.2B recognize elements of the English sound system in newly acquired vocabulary such as long and short vowels, silent letters, and consonant clusters
ELPS.c.2C learn new language structures, expressions, and basic and academic vocabulary heard during classroom instruction and interactions
ELPS.c.2D monitor understanding of spoken language during classroom instruction and interactions and seek clarification as needed
ELPS.c.2E use visual, contextual, and linguistic support to enhance and confirm understanding of increasingly complex and elaborated spoken language
ELPS.c.2F listen to and derive meaning from a variety of media such as audio tape, video, DVD, and CD ROM to build and reinforce concept and language attainment

ELPS.c.3 The ELL speaks in a variety of modes for a variety of purposes with an awareness of different language registers (formal/informal) using vocabulary with increasing fluency and accuracy in language arts and all content areas. ELLs may be at the beginning, intermediate, advanced, or advanced high stage of English language acquisition in speaking. In order for the ELL to meet grade-level learning expectations across the foundation and enrichment curriculum, all instruction delivered in English must be linguistically accommodated (communicated, sequenced, and scaffolded) commensurate with the student's level of English language proficiency. The student is expected to:
ELPS.c.3A practice producing sounds of newly acquired vocabulary such as long and short vowels, silent letters, and consonant clusters to pronounce English words in a manner that is increasingly comprehensible
ELPS.c.3B expand and internalize initial English vocabulary by learning and using high-frequency English words necessary for identifying and describing people, places, and objects, by retelling simple stories and basic information represented or supported by pictures, and by learning and using routine language needed for classroom communication
ELPS.c.3C speak using a variety of grammatical structures, sentence lengths, sentence types, and connecting words with increasing accuracy and ease as more English is acquired
ELPS.c.3D speak using grade-level content area vocabulary in context to internalize new English words and build academic language proficiency
ELPS.c.3E share information in cooperative learning interactions
ELPS.c.3F ask and give information ranging from using a very limited bank of high-frequency, high-need, concrete vocabulary, including key words and expressions needed for basic communication in academic and social contexts, to using abstract and content-based vocabulary during extended speaking assignments
ELPS.c.3G express opinions, ideas, and feelings ranging from communicating single words and short phrases to participating in extended discussions on a variety of social and grade-appropriate academic topics

ELPS.c.5 The ELL writes in a variety of forms with increasing accuracy to effectively address a specific purpose and audience in all content areas. ELLs may be at the beginning, intermediate, advanced, or advanced high stage of English language acquisition in writing. In order for the ELL to meet grade-level learning expectations across foundation and enrichment curriculum, all instruction delivered in English must be linguistically accommodated (communicated, sequenced, and scaffolded) commensurate with the student's level of English language proficiency. For Kindergarten and Grade 1, certain of these student expectations do not apply until the student has reached the stage of generating original written text using a standard writing system. The student is expected to:
ELPS.c.5A learn relationships between sounds and letters of the English language to represent sounds when writing in English
ELPS.c.5B write using newly acquired basic vocabulary and content-based grade-level vocabulary
