Overview

Year 9 Area, Surface Area and Volume is a component of the Measurement and Geometry strand of the Australian curriculum. Students studying Year 9 Area, Surface Area and Volume establish the formulae to calculate the volume of rectangular prisms and cylinders, convert between metric units of length and area and volume, and calculate the surface area of prisms and cylinders is well as compare volume and capacity of prisms.
