• Unit 10: Surface Area and Volume

    Finding the amount of space inside of an object is important, and something you will do in your everyday life. If you try to fill a box with DVDs, to fill up a sandbox, or to fill a pool with water, you will use concept of volume. There are more shapes than just simple boxes, so you will learn to find the amount of space inside different types of three-dimensional objects.

    Finding the amount of space on the outside of an object is also something you will do in your everyday life. If you decide to paint your house, you need to know how much space is going to be painted; buying too much paint would be a waste of money, and buying too little paint would be a nuisance. A few minutes of calculating can ensure that you get the amount of paint you need.

    Completing this unit should take you approximately 15 hours.
