Background Tutorials

Represent three-dimensional figures using nets made up of rectangles and triangles, and use the nets to find the surface area of these figures. Apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.

Understanding solids is a building block for finding their lateral area, surface area, and volume. In this tutorial, you'll see examples of solids and learn their different parts. Take a look!

Know the formulas for the area and circumference of a circle and use them to solve problems; give an informal derivation of the relationship between the circumference and area of a circle.

Circles are a fundamental part of math! In this tutorial, you'll be introduced to circles and see the different parts of a circle such as the diameter, radius, and chord. Check out this tutorial to learn about circles!

Further Exploration

Know the formulas for the volumes of cones, cylinders, and spheres and use them to solve real-world and mathematical problems.

Did you know that you can use the formula for the area of a circle to find the formula for the volume of a cylinder? In this tutorial, you'll see how to do just that! Watch this tutorial to learn about the formula for the volume of a cylinder.
