Big Ideas: Surface area and volume of rectangular prisms can be used to solve real-world problems. In this lesson, students apply their understanding of surface area and volume of rectangular prisms to solve real-world problems. Students are presented with the task of building a claw machine for Fran's FunHouse. Students need to determine the dimensions of a claw machine that can hold up to 15 stuffed animals. Once students calculate the needed volume, they must find the dimensions of a claw machine that holds the needed volume and has the smallest surface area. Vocabulary: area, surface area, volume, two-dimensional (2D), three-dimensional (3D) Special Materials: None
