2 Lesson ObjectiveStudents will work with a formula for the surface area of a prism.
3 Lesson BeginningIn your own words, define surface area. List 3 real life examples where you would need to find surface area.
4 Surface Area of PrismsSurface area of a polyhedron is the sum of the areas of its faces. The surface area of any prism is the sum of the areas of the bases and the lateral faces. S = areas of bases + areas of lateral faces
5 Surface Area of a Rectangular Prism SA = 2(lw + lh + wh)
6 Surface Area of Triangular Prisms SA = Area of three rectangles + Area of two triangles
