Understand Volume and How Volume is Measured
Activate prior knowledge by first reviewing different things and ways we measure things. Then, discuss what it means to measure volume. Learners will be introduced to units of volume and key vocabulary. The highly visual nature of the video will assist the class in understanding the units and tools used in determining volume.

Exploring Volume of Cylinders
Tenth graders investigate the volume of a cylinder. In this geometry lesson, 10th graders create three-dimensional cylinders and use a ruler to determine the dimensions. The lesson progresses to the use of the formula to find the volume and allows students to analyze how changing the radius and height of a cylinder affect this volume.

What is the Formula for the Volume of a Cylinder?
Finding the volume of a cylinder entails using two formulas: the formula for the area of a circle and the formula for volume. The area of the given circle must be solved because that value is used in the formula for volume. Watch this video as the instructor demonstrates how to find the volume of a cylinder.

For this Boyle's Law worksheet, students investigate the relationship between the pressure and the volume of a gas at constant temperature. They use a syringe and a pressure gauge attached to a computer to collect their data. They create a graph that shows the relationship between pressure and volume.

Write Numerical Expressions Using Area and Volume Models
See how geometry and exponents relate and show your learners how to find area and volume. The video shares the idea of why we use exponents with area and volume and does an example of each. Examples do not evaluate exponents, but that can be done after showing this third video in a series of five.

Volume of Snow and Water
Fifth graders identify the volume of snow as greater than the volume of ice. They calculate the volume ratio of snow: water. They discuss the properties of snow and liquid water that cause changes in volume and understand that 1 mililiter of water weighs 1 gram.
