Lessons 17 and 18 engage students in finding the surface area of prisms and pyramids. Students leverage their skills with numerical expressions to organize and represent their work in finding the surface area. Lesson 17 focuses on prisms and Lesson 18 focuses on pyramids. In Lesson 21, students will revisit surface area as it compares to volume in real-world contexts.
