Surface Area and Volume of Conics - Cylinders, Cones, and Spheres
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.
Volume of Pyramids and Cones
High schoolers find the volume of pyramids and cones. In this volume of pyramids and cones instructional activity, learners explore the relationship between the volumes of prisms and pyramids. They investigate the relationship between pyramids and cones.
For this cardiovascular worksheet, students read through notes, fill out a chart, and complete 30 review short answer questions.
The Open Box - An Exploration of Maximum Volume
Students explore the concept of volume. For 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.
Perimeter, Area, and Volume
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.
An Introduction To Volume
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.
Lesson 10.2 Volume of Prisms and Cylinders
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.
Nets, Surface Area and Volume
Students 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.
Volume of 3D Shapes
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.
The Candy Conundrum
Students design a candy container that contains a specific amount of candy. They demonstrate how an engineering problem can be solved with math and that there are multiple answers to the problem. They compute volume of spheres.
Cross Sections and Collision Times
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.
Proof: Volume Ratios in a Carnot Cycle
Sal goes back to a look at the Adiabatic process in this chemistry video. He sets up a Carnot Cycle that occurs within an adiabatic process; meaning there is no transfer of heat. From that problem, Sal constructs Volume Ratios which is a mathematical way of proving that no heat was transferred.
New! Compare and Convert Metric Units of Volume
Learners will walk away with a deeper understanding of how kiloliters, liters, centiliters, and milliliters compare after this lesson, the last in a five-part series. The term conversion is reviewed, along with units and conversions for volume in the United States and metric systems. A detailed walk-through of two word problems, the first simple and the second more complex, includes multiple ways to find the answer.
Learners, 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.
Pressure and Volume of Gases
Students investigate pressure and volume as they relate to gases. In this pressure and volume lesson plan, students observe multiple demonstrations related to air pressure. The develop an understanding of the relationship between pressure and volume in gases as Boyle's Law states and how a manometer and barometer work.
Volume and Surface Area: Which Is More?
Students explore the volume and surface area of three dimensional figures. Through the use of video, students discover three dimensional shapes, their uses in real-life applications, and methods used to calculate their volume and surface area. Students participate in hands-on activities to calculate the volume and surface area of different shapes.
Using Your Marbles - Volume Measurement and Reporting
Demonstrate how to measure the volume of liquids and solids immersed in liquid to your class. They observe a teacher-led demonstration, and in small groups construct a data table that demonstrates how many marbles were used and the height of the water after they poured water into their graduated cylinder. They then construct a bar graph using their data.
Turn Up the Volume
Measuring volume can be a mystery for 5th graders, but this hands-on activity gives the gift of discovery. The volume of simple rectangular solids and irregular shapes are calculated through various methods including displacing liquid in graduated cylinders. The final steps in the procedure encourage the development of new ways to measure area or volume outside of the traditional algorithm.
Students create a still life drawing creating volume using oil pastels. Given a specific set of directions and materials, a sphere is created using proper technique to convey volume. After the drawing is completed, students write a one-page paper analyzing the process of creating their drawing.
Volume of Rectangular Prisms
Introduce the procedure needed to find the volume of a rectangular prism. Learners rank various prisms such as cereal boxes and tissue boxes from smallest to largest volume. They use an applet to find the volume and surface area of each rectangular prisms.
