Transcript of Video Review: Surface Area and Volume

Surface Area
Volume Video Video Selection Support of Student Learning This video was download from Discovery Education.

This is a trusted site built for educational materials, educators, and students. The developers of this site and video, create the videos and material around Common Core standards and the interests of learners. The video is engaging, while also supporting the course standards and lesson objectives for a high school geometry course.
The video visually describes the difference between surface area and volume.
The video accurately describes and includes learners in the process of discovering the formulas for prisms and cylinders.
The video goes beyond calculating volumes and surface areas, but presents learners with a real world connection through the cheese problem. Within this problem, students must thinking critically, problem solve, and interpret results. This video was picked over text or images because it easily engages learners through visual and auditory presentation.

"Streaming media such as video and audio can help learners understand complex concepts and procedures that are difficult to explain with simple text and graphics" (Klass, 2003).

"By using visual and auditory messages, students can process the information quicker, which in turn, helps foster their learning acquisition of the material." (Hartsell & Yuen, 2006)

The video made real world connections, that would be difficult to show or describe with words or pictures. Why Common Core Standards The three dimensional shapes (square/rectangular prism and cylinder) included are very basic shapes.

Students will still need more reinforcement, specifically hands on activities with 3-D figures, after the video.

The video could not be used as a stand alone lesson. Students will need more information and practice to find the volume or surface area of either type of 3-D shape. They cannot be expected to have mastered the material after watching the video. Limitations of the Video G.GMD.1 Explain the formulas for the volume of a cylinder, pyramid and cone by determining the meaning of each term or factor.
G.GMD.3 Solve problems using volume formulas
G.MG.3 Apply geometric methods to solve design problems (e.g. designing an object to satisfy physical constraints or minimize cost)
