In this lesson, students will examine cylinders and prisms, define them, and measure their surface areas and volumes. The site has clear illustrations, translating the shapes to 2-dimensional figures, and practice problems for educators to solve with the students. There are two example problems at the end that students may tackle alone to solidify their understanding.
