Seventh graders find the surface area and volume of a cylinder. In this area and volume lesson, 7th graders complete several activities to learn the volume and surface area of cylinders.
Middle and high schoolers calculate the volume of cylinders. They measure the height, radius and diameter of cylinders. Following given formulas, students calculate the area and volume of the cylinder. They compare cylinders and predict volumes.
Finding the volume of a cylinder entails using two formulas: the formula for the area of a circle and the formula for volume. The area of the given circle must be solved because that value is used in the formula for volume. Watch this video as the instructor demonstrates how to find the volume of a cylinder.
What is the formula to find the volume of a cylinder? Here's the formula - volume equals base times height, and the base of a cylinder is base equals pi times radius squared. If the is a given value for radius, and a given value for height, then the volume of the given cylinder can be found.
This task will give your geometry learners practice solving problems using volume formulas of cylinders and prisms as well as make some fish very happy. The task is to submerge a home for the fish in a tank that is a rectangular prism. The fish home is a cylinder with a hole in the middle in the shape of a right square prism. Learners analyze the scenario given and present their findings to the class.
Thomas needs help with his fish tank! He wants to add a large decoration that will serve as a home for the fish in the tank. The decoration is a right solid cylinder with a hole through the middle in the shape of a right square prism. Thomas wants to make sure that the water in the tank won't overflow when he adds the decoration. Geometers use volume formulas for cylinders and prisms in this real-world problem that requires them to consider different interpretations of how the information is presented.

Tenth graders investigate the volume of a cylinder.  In this geometry lesson, 10th graders create three-dimensional cylinders and use a ruler to determine the dimensions.  The lesson progresses to the use of the formula to find the volume and allows students to analyze how changing the radius and height of a cylinder affect this volume.
Math whizzes examine the relationship between area and volume and the relationship between a 3-D shape and its surface area. Following discussion and practice, pupils participate in a project in which they design packaging for a new environmentally safe product.
This lesson plan 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. 
Students explore the concept of volume. In this volume instructional activity, students find the volume of cylinders and convert them into volumes of rectangular prisms. Students try to minimize surface area when converting the cylinders. Students compare volume formulas of cylinders and rectangular prisms.
Students work with given formulas to solve for specific variables. The calculation of the volume of a cylinder and the change in volume when there is a constant surface area is analyzed in this lesson.
Eighth graders compare the volume of three cylinders constructed from the same size sheet of paper. They use concrete and graphical models to derive formulas for finding perimeter, circumference, area, and volume of two and three dimensional shapes.
Students predict the shape of a geometric figure in 3D. In this geometry lesson, students construct 3D shapes to perfect their knowledge of measuring and predicting. This assignment is also available as an online interactive lesson.    
Provide your class some practice with the dimensions of geometric figures. Here you have a set of three different-shaped, stemmed drinking glasses with diameters and heights provided. Math-minded individuals calculate the volume of each. Offer up a toast to the learner who first answers correctly!
In this geometry worksheet, 10th graders determine the volume of a cylinder given the radius and the height of the diameter and the height. The one page worksheet contains eight problems. Answer key is provided. 
Tenth graders explore the volume of a cylinder.  In this geometry lesson, 10th graders investigate the volume of a round bale of hay and the percent of loss as the radius of the bale decreases.   The lesson includes step-by-step instructions to guide students  through the constructions.    TI-nspire handheld is required.
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!
Young geometers explore relationships between units of measure and objects. Three activities provide varied opportunities to practice. Learners calculate the volume of two cylinders made by rolling a piece of paper vertically and horizontally (noting two different volumes with the same surface area). They design hexagons on graph paper. And they estimate the length and width of an egg, measure with calipers, plot dimensions on a scatter plot, and more.
Learners build a family of cylinders and discover the relation between the dimensions of the generating rectangle and the resulting pair of cylinders. They order the cylinders by volume and draw a conclusion about the relation between dimensions & vol
