Volume of a Sphere Teacher Resources
Find Volume of a Sphere educational ideas and activities
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.
In this mathematical model of the sun worksheet, high schoolers 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.
For 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.
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.
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 roots and the Pythagorean Theorem worksheet, learners solve 15 different types of problems related to square roots and applying the Pythagorean Theorem. They first determine the square root of each number and then, the cube root. Pupils also determine the length of each unknown side in the illustrations shown and determine the sets of numbers that can be the lengths of the sides of a right triangle.
The animated S2 Unit will use the adventures of a Super Hero and her sidekick to teach basic science and math concepts. Educators can use comic books, Saturday Morning Cartoons and the adventures of Super Heroes to teach a nine-week science and math unit. This unit will cover Metric Measurement.
Students 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. Students compare the volume of the balloon to the volume of the solid dry ice. They conclude that gases occupy more space than solids.
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.
In this Saturn's rings worksheet, learners read about the Spitzer telescope that detected a new ring around Saturn. Students solve 6 problems including determining the formula for the area of a circle, finding the volume of the new ring detected, determining the volume of Earth and calculating how many Earths can fit into the space of the new ring.
There is more than one way to measure an amount, as learners discover by applying multiple measurement tools in these activities. Centimeter cubes, cylinders, beakers, and measuring cups are used to find the volume of regular and irregular shaped items. Prepare ahead of time for spillage as the class also experiments with displacement to find the volume. Extensive resources are linked to in the plan.
