Jill is planning to paint her bedroom. Her
bedroom is rectangular that measures 12’ by
10’ and has 9’ ceilings. Explain how Jill would
find the surface area of the walls of her
bedroom. If a gallon of paint covers 40 ft, how
many
gallons
of
paint
would
Jill

What is a metamorphic rock?
• The term "metamorphic"
means "to change form."
• Any rock (igneous,
sedimentary, or metamorphic)
can become a metamorphic
rock. If rocks are buried deep
in the Earth at high
temperatures and pressures,
they form new minerals and
textures all without melting. If
melting occurs, magma is
formed, starting the rock cycle
all over again.
How are metamorphic
rocks formed?
Non-foliated Metamorphic Rocks
• NON-FOLIATED metamorphic rocks
do not display layers. Rather, they are
massive structures with no obvious
banding. The mineral grains grow and
rearrange, but they don’t form layers.
• A good example of non-foliated rock
is quartzite, the smooth-textured,
metamorphosed form of the mineral
quartz.
• A coarse-textured non-foliated rock
is marble.
• Anthracite, or hard coal, is a nonfoliated rock that forms when intense
pressure drives gases out of soft coal,
causing it to harden.
