Surface Area Worksheets

This page contains a lot of surface area worksheets under various topics. It broadly classified as surface area of prisms, pyramids and spheres. Though the cone is a pyramid, we placed it under separate segment for easy identification. Most of the worksheets contain easy, medium and hard levels except for few topics. Student must know the formula or technique to solve the problems before taking these surface area worksheets.

Surface Area of Prisms

Counting Squares: Rectangular Prism

Each face of a cube has the area 1 cm2. Count the number of faces in each rectangular prism and find the surface area.
