Geometric Solids Unit Portfolio Presentation Lane Sanders

Unit Summary Each group will have to find out everything there is to know about a specific three dimensional solid in geometry. It will be your turn to teach the class what they need in order to pass the test and answer the number one question we all have, When am I ever gonna use this?. Activities will include researching the internet or other multimedia resources and presenting your information through a PowerPoint presentation that provides examples of your solid, surface area, volume, and real-life situations to go along with each one. Who can teach the class better than me? I guess we will see!!! Each group will have to find out everything there is to know about a specific three dimensional solid in geometry.

Curriculum Framing Questions Essential Question Essential Question When do you check the volume? Unit Questions Unit Questions 1. What does surface area and volume affect in your life? 2. Explain how you use surface area and volume with solids at your house. Content Questions Content Questions 1.Identify each solid by its picture. 2.Name the number of sides, vertices, and faces for each solid. 3.What is Eulers Formula? 4.What is surface area? 5.What is volume? 6.Write the formula for the surface area and volume of each solid. Describe what each part means. 7.What are the steps to find the surface area and volume of each solid? Explain using words and pictures. 8.How do you find the surface area of a solid without a formula?

Geometric Solids Project Through this project, the following 21 st century skills will be learned: Through this project, the following 21 st century skills will be learned: 1.Develop and communicate new ideas to others 2.Analyze and synthesize information in order to solve problems and answer questions. 3.Collaboration/working well in teams and with others. 4.Articulating ideas clearly and effectively 5.Using technology 6.Taking initiative, productivity, and be accountable for the learning of ones self and others.

Gauging Needs Assessment The purpose of this assessment is to find out what prior knowledge my students have about the geometric solids. The purpose of this assessment is to find out what prior knowledge my students have about the geometric solids. The assessment basically tells me the depth in which I should direct my questions when leading the students/teams to what I want them to find. The assessment basically tells me the depth in which I should direct my questions when leading the students/teams to what I want them to find. If they know nothing, then I direct them towards the basics before the more specific. If they know nothing, then I direct them towards the basics before the more specific. If a group already knows some about their solid I can guide them deeper into the information. If a group already knows some about their solid I can guide them deeper into the information. Furthermore, it helps me determine in what directions my other assessments to lead. Furthermore, it helps me determine in what directions my other assessments to lead.

My Goals for the course Feel more confident the project-based instruction Feel more confident the project-based instruction Learn new technology strategies to use the classroom Learn new technology strategies to use the classroom Learn new ideas through experienced teachers and maybe share the few I have.
