North Carolina's Lesson for Learning
Changing Surface Areas - 7G6, 7RP1, 7RP2
  • I can solve real world problems involving surface area of cubes.
  • I can draw a model for a proportional relationship.
  • I can compute unit rate.
Packing to Perfection - 7G6
  • I can find the surface area of a rectangular prism.
  • I can connect the model of a rectangular prism to the formula for its volume using the area of the base and the height.
  • I can recognize the orientation does not affect the volume.
  • I can recognize the prisms can have the same volume but different dimensions and surface areas.

My Humble Opinion
Area was already part of the 7th grade ACOS. Surface area and volume have been moved down from 8th grade, although they were also addressed in elementary school.
