High schoolers find the volume of pyramids and cones. In this volume of pyramids and cones lesson, learners explore the relationship between the volumes of prisms and pyramids. They investigate the relationship between pyramids and cones.
This is a multi-faced unit that looks at circles, arcs, sectors, cylinders, cones, spheres, and hemispheres. The formulas for finding length, area, surface area, and volume are discussed with an eye towards an intuitive understanding. Vocabulary is also stressed. This unit is organized to easily use only the parts you need. 
After providing your learners with a pre-assessment, group learners by ability level. Groups develop and use strategies to find perimeter of regular or irregular shapes using string, paper clips, links, and other objects. They find the area using tiles or counting squares of regular and irregular shapes on a grid. Pupils find the volume by layering cubes in a box.
Learners calculate volume of rectangular prisms and cylinders. They draw and label figures to use the formulas to calculate the volume of rectangular prisms. In addition, they use objects to calculate volume in a hands on activity.
Students explore the concept of volume.  In this volume lesson, students try to maximize the volume of a box using their Ti-Nspire.  Students graph the function representing the volume of the box and determine what dimensions yield the maximum volume.
In this cylinder volume instructional activity, learners fill out one chart for the height, circumference, radius, and base area of a cylinder and complete word problems. Students complete 9 problems.
For this cardiovascular worksheet, students read through notes, fill out a chart, and complete 30 review short answer questions.
Ninth graders demonstrate application of area, surface, and volume. They apply formulas to a model of the classroom so they can determine the volume and surface area of the classroom.
Here is an online geometry activity in which learners complete 10 multiplechoice questions where they find the volume of 3D cubes using multiplication. They can check their answers at the end of the learning exercise.
Tenth graders investigate volume in class and in the real world. They explore volume of cylinders and prisms as it relates to different subjects. Pupils also investigate how important volume is in different career field.
Calculate the volume for given shapes by having your learners find the volume of triangular, rectangular, and other polygonal prisms. They will use the correct formula to solve for the volume of each solid. A handout is included for this activity.
Fifth graders explore perimeter, volume and area and how they are used in everyday situations. In this geometry lesson students investigate the units of measure and begin to develop meaning for each. Then determine how to use them in everyday life situations.
Pupils explore the concept of dimension and its affect on overall volume. They construct rectangular prisms out of paper, then fill their prisms with popcorn. By transferring the same amount of popcorn to various prisms, they are able to compare the different sizes. This makes the concept of volume not only visual for your class, but also quite tasty!
Students find the volume of different solids. In this geometry lesson, students define volume of solids and calculate the volume of a cube, prism, pyramid, cylinder, cone and sphere.
High schoolers solve five problems including finding the cross sectional area of two bodies, determining the swept out volume of a moving body, finding the average particle volume of a body and determining the collision time for a body.
Upper graders explore the topic of volume. In this math lesson plan, pupils count volume in cubic units, multiply to find volume, estimate volume, write a multiplication sentence to find the volume, and make a cost analysis of different brands of popping corn.
Students solve problems involving gas laws. In this chemistry lesson, students compare the properties of ideal and real gases. They explain how volume, pressure and temperature are related.
Students, after reviewing the measuring of the lengths of sides of different shapes along with the calculation of their perimeters and areas, encounter what it means by the 'perimeter' of a polygon. They practice measuring units of volume as well as strategies to find the volumes of various solids.
Middle schoolers convert units of area and volume within the metric measurement system. They build models of square and cubic centimeters using centimeter grid paper. Students describe the attributes of the unit and what it measures.
Learners calculate the surface area and volume of a sphere. In this geometry lesson, students define nets, surface areas and volume of prisms, pyramids, cylinders and cones. They use the computer to create nets and analyze shapes.
