### 1. How to Find Surface Area of a Cylinder

A cylinder is a three-dimensional shape that is round and has a circular top and bottom. This lesson explores how to find the surface area of a cylinder using a formula.

### 2. How to Find the Surface Area of a Cube and a Rectangular Prism

After watching this video lesson, you will be able to use the formula for the surface area of a rectangular prism. You will know what measurements you need to use it and how you can apply it to a cube as well.

### 3. Volume of Prisms and Pyramids

The volume of prisms and pyramids can be calculated by multiplying the base and height and dividing the result by three. Learn more about the types of prisms and pyramids and how to calculate the volume of both.

### 4. Volume of Cylinders, Cones, and Spheres

Volume is the capacity of an object or how much space something occupies in that object. Learn how to identify the volume formulas for cylinders, cones, and spheres, and discover why different shapes have different volumes that can be applied in real-world situations to calculate volume.

### 5. Finding Surface Area of Figures with Complex Shapes

This lesson will define complex shapes and surface areas. We will then use an example to walk us through two ways of finding the surface area of figures with complex shapes as their bases.
