Here’s a tidbit I created for students to reference during our 3-D geometry unit. I had some trouble finding iPad-friendly links to interactive resources 🙁 because so many are flash-based. Nevertheless, I really like the way ThingLink handles video links! Very cool!
I plan to have students analyze the way the formula is presented for the volume of a sphere… syntax when typing fractions without an equation editor may change mathematics unintentionally! Rather than omit the resource, I think having a meaningful discussion about the formula might be mathematically rich and worthwhile.
Feel free to use or share!
Additionally, here are some graphics I created that help students “break down” the formulas to find the lateral and total surface areas of cylinders and prisms. Enjoy!
Curious about ways to use ThingLink in the classroom?
Here are some great ideas!
