# TIMES Module 11: Measurement and Geometry: area, volume and surface area - teacher guide

TLF ID M008601

This is a 15-page guide for teachers containing explanations of the derivation of formulas for the areas of parallelograms, trapeziums, rhombuses and kites. Formulas for the volumes and surface areas of prisms and cylinders are obtained. Applications of these formulas are given. A history of the development of these concepts concludes the module. It can be used in conjunction with Module 10: Measurement and Geometry: introduction to measurement, and is followed by Module 12: Measurement and Geometry: cones, pyramids and spheres.

#### Educational details

Educational value
• The modules are written for teachers. They provide the mathematical background to help teachers plan the development of topics in their classrooms. This module follows on from Module 10: Measurement and Geometry: introduction to measurement, and is itself followed by Module 12: Measurement and Geometry: cones, pyramids and spheres. Together these modules provide material for teaching the length, area and volume components of the Australian curriculum for years 7 to 10.
