What’s in It for Me? (Volume)
In this geometry worksheet, learners discover volume through understanding unit conversions and estimating volumes of rectangular prisms. There are 14 questions that have multiple parts and examples are given for each problem type.
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.
The Geometry of Solids
In this solids worksheet, students compute the volume of prisms, cylinders, pyramids, spheres and cones. This seven-page worksheet contains approximately 68 problems.
Find the Volume of a Rectangular Prism with Fractional Edge Lengths
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.
New! Using Linear Equations to Define Geometric Solids
Making the transition from two-dimensional shapes to three-dimensional solids can be difficult for many geometry students. 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.
Area, Surface, and Volume
Ninth graders demonstrate application of area, surface, and volume. They apply formulas to a model of the classroom so they can determine the volume and surface area of the classroom.
Volume of Prisms
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!
The Value of Volume
Students measure the perimeter and area of their polygons. In this geometry lesson, students calculate the volume and area using the correct tools. They calculate the time and temperature and the perimeter and side lengths of triangles.
Surface Area and Volume
In this surface area and volume worksheet, 8th graders solve 11 various geometry problems that include determining the surface area and volume for the measurements given and finding the surface area for each solid shown. Then they determine the volume and surface area of a house, a can, a bottle of ketchup, and box of 12 cans. Also, students determine the surface area of an isosceles triangular prism.
Area, Perimeter, Volume, Surface Area
In this area, perimeter, volume and surface area worksheet, 10th graders solve and complete 14 various types of problems. First, they identify and define basic formulas and geometry terms. Then, students find the perimeter, area or volume of each geometric figure illustrated.
Volume of Solid Figures
Learners calculate volume using the correct formula and the correct unit. They explore different prisms, spheres, cubes, and cones as they calculate volume and relate it to depths in oceans.
Volume of Solids: Algebra/Geometry Institute
Use this volume of solids lesson to have learners find the surface area and volume of cylinders, pyramids, and prisms. They place cubes inside three-dimensional figures to determine the volume. Worksheets and answers are provided.
Volume and Surface Area of Polyhedrea
In this volume and surface area learning exercise, learners use given formulas to determine the volume and area of polyhedrea. This four-page learning exercise contains examples, explanations and 32 problems. Answers are provided on the fourth page.
Living with Ladybugs
Fourth graders investigate the units of measurement which describe the measures; perimeter, area and volume. Using physical materials, they measure attributes of a box and determine which measurement tools measure the attribute.
Volume of Rectangular Prism and Cylinder
Learners calculate volume of rectangular prisms and cylinders. They draw and label figures to use the formulas to calculate the volume of rectangular prisms. In addition, they use objects to calculate volume in a hands on activity.
Party Volumes: Measurement
Second graders explore liters and milliliters. They estimate volume and accurately measure the volume. Students plan a party and measure volume using liters and milliliters as part of the planning process.
How Do You Find the Volume of a Triangular Pyramid?
Instruct your class on how to find the volume of a triangular pyramid using this tutorial. Learners can watch the video and take notes, later applying what they have seen to class work or homework. A clear video with direct instruction, this resource could also function as test review or a reference for class members.
The Nanofiber Chocolate Factory: An Analogy
Students investigate Nanotechnology. In this physic's lesson plan, students evaluate a hands-on model made from chocolate syrup and pretzels to determine the advantages of size. Students weigh chocolate syrup to determine it's wait in grams, and then measure pretzels in centimeters. After dipping the pretzels in the chocolate the students reweigh and remeasure the items. Students will explore and discuss many aspects of Nanotechnology.
Fifth graders practice conversions from standard measurements to metric measurements using online games and online conversion tools. They work in teams of three to four to conduct hands-on experiments.
Students explore the relationship between mass, volume and density. They use model boats to discover how changing mass and volume affect density. This is a very engaging lesson which provides great demonstrations and hands-on activities.
