Introduce the procedure needed to find the volume of a rectangular prism. Learners rank various prisms such as cereal boxes and tissue boxes from smallest to largest volume. They use an applet to find the volume and surface area of each rectangular prisms.
Fourth graders calculate volume. In this volume lesson, 4th graders calculate, estimate, and compare units of volume in English and metric systems.
Sal goes back to a look at the Adiabatic process in this chemistry video. He sets up a Carnot Cycle that occurs within an adiabatic process; meaning there is no transfer of heat. From that problem, Sal constructs Volume Ratios which is a mathematical way of proving that no heat was transferred.
Measuring volume can be a mystery for 5th graders, but this hands-on activity gives the gift of discovery. The volume of simple rectangular solids and irregular shapes are calculated through various methods including displacing liquid in graduated cylinders. The final steps in the procedure encourage the development of new ways to measure area or volume outside of the traditional algorithm. 
In these area, perimeter, and volume worksheets, learners complete 5 worksheets of activities to help them find area, perimeter, and volume of figures. Students complete 17 activities.
Making the transition from two-dimensional shapes to three-dimensional solids can be difficult for many geometry learners. This comprehensive lesson starts with writing and graphing linear equations to define a bounded region and calculating the areas and perimeters of the space. Using this as a base, the lesson then has learners revolve these regions to create solid figures and calculate the resulting volume. A real-world example using a bowling ball and visualization software caps off this in-depth instruction.
Students explore the volume and surface area of three dimensional figures. Through the use of video, students discover three dimensional shapes, their uses in real-life applications, and methods used to calculate their volume and surface area. Students participate in hands-on activities to calculate the volume and surface area of different shapes.
Learners will walk away with a deeper understanding of how kiloliters, liters, centiliters, and milliliters compare after this instructional activity, the last in a five-part series. The term conversion is reviewed, along with units and conversions for volume in the United States and metric systems. A detailed walk-through of two word problems, the first simple and the second more complex, includes multiple ways to find the answer.
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. 
Students examine mathematical questions. They examine how to tackle mathematical questions and discover the effect of a change in length on area and volume. They examine the consequences of the physical properties sea animals on heat loss and examine why there are the limits on the size of animals.
Students engage in a lesson that is concerned with finding the volume of a solid. They investigate and describe the characteristics of a favorite food and identify it as metal or non-metal. The lesson includes pictures of different solid shapes that need to be matched with a corresponding food.
Practice volume by calculating the dimensions of a prism using fractional lengths. The final video in a series of three, shows how fractional lengths can combine to make whole units. Does not show how to use dimensions with volume formula. 
In this density worksheet, students learn about density and how to solve density problems. They calculate the mass, volume, or density in fifteen problems using what they learned.
In this solids worksheet, students compute the volume of prisms, cylinders, pyramids, spheres and cones.  This seven-page worksheet contains approximately 68 problems. 
Young scholars investigate pressure and volume as they relate to gases. In this pressure and volume lesson plan, students observe multiple demonstrations related to air pressure. The develop an understanding of the relationship between pressure and volume in gases as Boyle's Law states and how a manometer and barometer work.
Explore the concept of volume of prisms using an applet to perform the calculations. The link to the interactive applet is embedded into the lesson plan as well as a link to associated data sheets. Get your math class to the computer lab and build some skills!
Eleventh graders work in small groups to derive the formula for calculating the surface area of a cone from cone-shaped ice cream wrappers. Using a hands-on approach, the lesson guides students through deriving the surface area formula in terms of the circumference of the base and the slant height.
Students determine the relationship between perimeter, circumference, area, surface area, and/or volume of similar figures and their parts. They complete activities related to the question. Answer key included.
Students identify he proportion of a cereal box. In this algebra instructional activity, students define the relationship between patterns, functions and relations. They model their understanding using the cereal box.
Students conduct a variety of exploration activities on various science topics. In this science lesson outline, students design a cell encapsulation to hold a specific type of medicine. They give examples of physical and chemical properties of substances.
