Volume of a Sphere
Learners experiment to understand the volume of a sphere. In this volume lesson, pupils create spheres, fill them, and then find the volume of their spheres. Everyone calculates the inside of planets.
How Do You Find the Volume of a Sphere?
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.
Measurement: 2D and 3D
Students 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.
Geometry Worksheets-volume of Sphere
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.
A Mathematical Model of the Sun
For this mathematical model of the sun worksheet, 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.
Using Concept Maps to Design 3D Spheres
High schoolers create three dimensional shapes using concept maps. In this geometry instructional activity, students investigate the impact of mental schemas on humans. They collect data on this topic and plot their data on a coordinate plane.
Practice 11-6 Surface Areas and Volumes of Spheres
In this area and volume worksheet, students find the surface area and volume of given spheres. This one-page worksheet contains 19 problems.
Volume and Surface Area
In this volume and surface area worksheet, students 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.
Cylinder Volume and Surface Area
Providing detailed diagrams and step-by-step instructions, this video explores how to find the volume and surface area of a cylinder. Tip: It would be beneficial as a review prior to a test which covers the concept of volume.
New! Measuring and Protecting Skin
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!
How Big Can a Bee Be?
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.
Surface Area and Volume of Conics - Cylinders, Cones, and Spheres
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.
Spheres Volume and Surface Area
The essential question posed in this lesson is, "How are surface areas and volumes of spheres used?" Kids calculate the volume and surface area of spheres, define vocabulary words, and derive the formulas that must be used to solve for the volume of spheres. Multiple worksheets, a rubric, and web links are included.
It's The States of Matter
Students investigate the properties of solids, liquids and gases. In 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. Students compare the volume of the balloon to the volume of the solid dry ice. They conclude that gases occupy more space than solids.
Geometry End Review/Test
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.
Geometry Course Review
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.
Geometry Review Exam
In 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 Studies of the Earth
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.
A Classical & Relativistic Trip to a Black Hole
Students 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.
AP Calculus Practice Exam
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.
