= 1 square unit
1. If the net was cut out along the solid lines and folded along the broken lines, what figure
would be created?
Draw the model and describe it in complete sentences.
Drawing
Sample Response:
The figure would have 3 faces that are rectangles
and 2 faces that are triangles. The student might
use “triangular prism” in the response
depending on prior experiences with prisms.
2. What is the surface area of the figure?
The student will most likely count the number of squares within each shape and indicate the
approximate number. The main idea is estimation in conjunction with 2-D and 3-D models.
Each triangle is about 6 square units. Each parallelogram is about 23 square units.
The total surface area would be approximately 2(5) + 3(22) or about 76 square units since the
total area would be the sum of all the individual areas.
As long as the student response is close to 70.5 square units and the work is mathematically
sound, the estimated response is okay.
