First, you need to know the formula for the area of a circle, and then you need to know the formula for the volume of a cylinder, and then from these two you can put together the formula for the volume of a cone. If you are given a couple of values, you can then plug them into the formula and find the volume of the given cone.
This lesson starts with geometers discussing how to find the volume of a cone and pyramid, using what they know about the volume of a cylinder or prism. Then, using the formulas, they calculate the volume of cones and other conics using the correct formula. 
Middle schoolers determine the volume of three-dimensional figures. In this shape it up instructional activity, learners calculate the volume of a cone, cylinder, and a rectangular prism. They determine the most efficient and cost effective way to package and ship given objects.
Students calculate the volume for different cones and pyramids. In this geometry lesson, students analyze the volume for 2 and 3 dimensional objects.
In this volume worksheet, students find the volume of five cones.  Students are given two pieces of information for each cone.  Solutions are provided.
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!
Mathematicians investigate maximizing volume by learning to 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. 
In this Algebra II/Geometry lesson, young scholars investigate the problem of maximizing the volume of a cone. They build concrete models and calculate the volume. Pupils use technology to construct, gather data, and determine the sector angle that maximizes the volume. 
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.
Students investigate volume of a cone.  In this secondary mathematics lesson plan, students explore what sector angle maximizes the cone’s volume.  Students collect data for a variety of angles, make a scatter plot and determine the maximum value from the scatter plot.
In this Geometry Chapter 13 review worksheet, students complete 20 multiple choice questions and 1 bonus question regarding volume, dilation, and midpoint and distance between points of 3D objects.
In this geometric shapes worksheet, 7th graders solve and complete 8 different problems that include working in a 3-D sudoku puzzle. First, they determine the area of a circle of a sphere to the nearest tenth. Then, students determine the ratio of the volume of a cone to the volume of a cylinder. They also determine the dimensions of a radius and height of a cylinder tripled.
For this geometry worksheet, 10th graders find the volume of a cone, or given the volume find the radius or the height.  The one page interactive worksheet contains five multiple choice questions and is self checking. 
Making the transition from two-dimensional shapes to three-dimensional solids can be difficult for many geometry learners. This comprehensive lesson starts with writing and graphing linear equations to define a bounded region and calculating the areas and perimeters of the space. Using this as a base, the lesson then has learners revolve these regions to create solid figures and calculate the resulting volume. A real-world example using a bowling ball and visualization software caps off this in-depth instruction.
A big ice cream cone is the perfect representation of a a mathematical sphere and cone. The activity asks learners to determine whether the scoop of ice cream can fit inside the cone if packed in. If not, construct a new cone that will fit the scoop of ice cream and be a reasonable size. There can be multiple correct answers so let your class decide which cone is their favorite!
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. 
In this end of the year geometry review worksheet, 10th graders solve and complete 140 different multiple choice problems. First, they find the slope-intercept form of a line passing through a point and parallel to a given line. Then, students determine the transformations that best represent an isometry. They also find the measures of various angles if a triangle within a circle.
In this geometry review set of worksheet, 10th graders solve and complete 139 various types of problems. First, they find the slope-intercept form of a line passing through a point and parallel to a line given. Then, students find the length of the leg of a right triangle. They also determine the area of various quadrilaterals.
