View Resource Surface Area to Volume Ratio

This resource from the Midwest Regional Center for Nanotechnology Education (NANO-LINK) is one of a series that introduces students to the the forces and interactions central to understanding nanotechnology. In this module, students will learn about the relationship between surface area and volume, specifically how "for a given volume of material the total surface area increases non-linearly as...

View Resource Oil Tankers

This website on oil tankers, authored by United Nations Atlas of the Oceans, explains how their size is a consequence of how their volume and surface area scale up. A cross-section diagram shows how the relative size of oil tankers has grown from the 1950s to the 1990s. Limiting factors on the size of tankers are also discussed.

View Resource Surface to Volume Ratio Activity

By the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network, this two-part laboratory activity was designed to complement any chemistry unit on catalysts to "help students understand how nanoparticles may be more effective catalysts by investigating how the surface area-to-volume ratio of a substance is affected as its shape changes." On this site, educators can find both the teacher and student...

View Resource Math in Daily Life

Math in the "real world" happens all the time, and it can involve everything from buying a car to following a simple (or complex) recipe. The "Math in Daily Life" site offers up a series of interesting ways to get students thinking about how math works in everyday life. Created by Annenberg Media, this set of interactive exercises looks at the manifestation of mathematical principles in areas of...
