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.
Eighth graders define volume, prisms, cylinders, pyramids, and cones. They find the volume of those shapes, and determine which volume formulas to use for each shape. They utilize a worksheet and access websites imbedded in this plan to gain practice.
Students identify nets and calculate the volume of a pyramid. In this geometry lesson plan, students draw nets of pyramids and calculate the volume using the correct formula for the given net. They relate the formula of a pyramid to that of a prism.
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!
Pupils calculate the surface are and volume. In this geometry lesson, learners create nets of their different polygons. They find the area of nets and prisms as they define the parts of the polygons.
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.
Students investigate the volume of cones. In this geometry lesson, students define the formula to find the volume of cones. They define the concept of having to dissect a three dimensional figure and find the volume.
Learners solve volume problems. In this geometry lesson, the class watches a video about clean water (link provided) and individuals compare the volume of different prisms, including an actual drinking glass. Extension activities include research on organizations that provide safe drinking water and the volume of the containers they use.
In this 3D shapes worksheet, 10th graders solve and complete 6 various types of problems. First, they find the radius of a cylinder described. Then, students determine the volume of a pyramid shown. In addition, they find the volume of the frustum illustrated.
In this volume worksheet, students determine the volume of prisms, pyramids, cylinders and cones. They find the volume of shaded regions. This two-page worksheet contains 22 multi-step problems.
In this volume worksheet, learners find the volume of prisms, pyramids, cones, cylinders, and spheres. This four-page worksheet contains 35 problems. The first page of the worksheet is a list of formulas and terms the student should master. The problems follow on the next page.
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. 
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. 
In this area, surface area, and volume worksheet, students solve 19 short answer problems. Students find the area of two dimensional polygons and circles. Students find the surface area and volume of prisms and pyramids.
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.
In this exploring three-dimensional figures worksheet, 10th graders solve 111 various types of problems that include three-dimensional figures. They create a model of each figure and draw the back view for each one. Then, students identify the number and type of polygons that are faces of each polyhedron. They also find the lateral area and surface area of each right prism or right cylinder.
Students explore the mathematical properties of traditional American Indian lodges. They examine the effect of increasing sides of a polygon, calculate the surface area of prisms and cylinders, and construct a classroom size pyramid using crepe paper. As a culminating activity, students conduct research on a traditional American Indian dwelling and write a research paper.
In this geometry activity, 10th graders determine the volume of rectangular and triangular prisms and pyramids. The one page interactive activity contains eleven questions. Answers and hints are included. 
High schoolers determine the surface area of the Luxor Hotel, using the square feet of the base, volume, and the volume formula. They create a scale model of the triangular/pyramid shaped hotel.
In this similar figures worksheet, 10th graders solve and complete 21 different problems related to various types of figures. First, they determine the ratio of similarity between two similar pyramids given their height. Then, students find the volume of a right, square pyramid and draw a picture and label the sides. They also find the surface area and volume of a cylinder given its diameter and height.
