Learners experiment to understand the volume of a sphere. In this volume instructional activity, pupils create spheres, fill them, and then find the volume of their spheres. Everyone calculates the inside of planets.
The formula for the volume of a sphere is - volume equals four thirds pi times the radius cubed. That's a mouth-full. But if you are given the radius value of the sphere, all you have to do is plug it in and do the arithmetic. Just remember to use order of operation.
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 geometry worksheet, 10th graders determine the volume of a sphere, given the diameter or the radius. The one page interactive worksheet contains eight questions. Hints, clues, and answers are provided.
In this mathematical model of the sun learning exercise, students read about the way scientists use the sun's radius and mass to determine a mathematical model of the sun using the volume of a sphere, and the relationship between density, volume and mass. Students use an Excel spreadsheet to calculate the volume of the core of the sun and the shell zones.
Students create three dimensional shapes using concept maps. In this geometry lesson, students investigate the impact of mental schemas on humans. They collect data on this topic and plot their data on a coordinate plane.
For this area and volume worksheet, students find the surface area and volume of given spheres. This one-page worksheet contains 19 problems.
In this volume and surface area worksheet, learners find the volume in each of the ten problems listed and write their measurements in terms of the larger amount. They find the volume of a sphere, a rectangular solid, and a cylinder. Students also determine the surface area of a cube, a sphere, and a right circular cone in the last 3 problems.
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!
Several subjects are addressed within the context of a science lesson about the sun's ultraviolet rays. Elementary earth scientists consider protection of the skin with sunscreens (health), estimating and measuring surface area or an orange and their own bodies (math), and a fictional story, Mr. Slaptail's Curious Contraption, can also be incorporated (language arts). What an exciting lesson within a comprehensive unit on Earth's atmosphere!
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. 
Mathematicians analyze the relationships between surface area and volume. They conduct Internet research, conduct various experiments, record the data in a spreadsheet, and graph the results and compare the rate of increase of surface area to the rate of increase of volume.
Young scholars investigate the properties of solids, liquids and gases. For this states of matter lesson plan, students observe dry ice and its characteristics. They calculate the density of dry ice and observe the sublimation of the dry ice when placed in a balloon. Young scholars compare the volume of the balloon to the volume of the solid dry ice. They conclude that gases occupy more space than solids.
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.
For this geometry review worksheet, 10th graders solve and complete 100 various types of problems studied in geometry. First, they find the slope-intercept form of a line passing through two points and parallel to a given line. They also find the length of the leg of a right triangle. in addition, they determine the area of a given quadrilateral.
Density comes to life as investigators place soda cans into containers of various liquids to find if they sink or float. They layer different density liquids, compare densities of different gases, and more. A total of six different density exercises help earth science learners grasp how differing density drives the motion of Earth's magma, oceans, and atmosphere. You will find this unit complete with several assessment or homework assignments.
Learners calculate distance, velocity, acceleration and time on their fantasy trip to the black hold. They apply Newton's Laws of Motion and calculate circular motion. They discuss any questions that may arise.
In this practice exam worksheet, students solve 17 multiple choice problems. Students find derivatives, points of continuity, maximums, minimums, integrals, and area of enclosed regions.
The types of decay, and why they occur within an atom, are the focus of this chemistry video. Sal covers the basic ways that a nucleus of an atom can decay. He gives examples of beta decay, alpha decay, gamma decay, and positron emission.
