MATH FOR TEACHERS
posted by brittney on .
the roof is a right rectangular prism and the floor is a rectangle. (its the outside of a warehouse). for the roof- the base has 51 x 51. The rectangular for the floor is 120 (l) x 20 (h) x 90 (w). need to find the volume and surface area. (counting the floor) Give an organized list for how you figured out the SA (floor= 120x90=10,800, front left=etc.) teacher said I would have to find the missing piece for the roof using the pathagorean theorem but what is the missing peice? Height maybe?
Can you tell me something? Why should "math for teachers" be any different from math for everyone? Shouldn't teachers be as well taught as everyone else?
