This chapter embraces the awesomeness that is area and volume! You will begin with the foundation of it all – perimeter and area of a rectangle. From there you will study the area of parallelograms, triangles, and complex figures before ending your study of the area of two-dimensional figures with trapezoids and circles. Throughout the chapter you will explore not only how to use the correct area formulas but master how the formulas came to be and connect to one another. In the second half of the chapter you will engage in an overview of what solids are before learning the ins and outs of finding the lateral and surface areas of prisms, cylinders, pyramids, and cones. This wild math ride concludes with the study of how to find the volumes of prisms, cylinders, pyramids, cones, and spheres. Jump right on into your studies of the objects that make up so much of the world around you!
