Volume of a Cone Teacher Resources
Find Volume of a Cone educational ideas and activities
A fabulous four-page assignment explores volume formulae for rectangular prisms, cylinders, cones, and pyramids. Pupils apply the formulas to solve problems, match diagrams to values, and address real-world scenarios. A detailed answer key shows step-by-step how to arrive at the correct result. This is a colorful and attractive assignment to add to your curriculum arsenal!
Students investigate maximizing volume. For this calculus lesson, students explore the problem in which they seek to maximize the volume of a cone. Students solve the problem symbolically, graphically, and through the use of integration or differentiation and are evaluated accordingly.
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.
Geometry whizzes solve and complete 24 different problems that include determining the volume and surface area of spheres and cones. First, they use the given information to determine the volume of a cone. Then, pupils use the given information to determine the surface area of a sphere.
Eighth graders investigate how to calculate volume and surface areas of a variety of solid figures. They view and discuss the two-dimensional patterns of three-dimensional objects, discuss the definition of circumference and area of a circle, and solve volume and surface area problems on a worksheet.
