Towers of Steel
This lesson starts with geometers discussing how to find the volume of a cone and pyramid, using what they know about the volume of a cylinder or prism. Then, using the formulas, they calculate the volume of cones and other conics using the correct formula.
PV-diagrams and Expansion Work
In this chemistry video, Sal teaches why work from expansion in an energy transfer takes up the space underneath the curved line of a PV Diagram. Pressure is on the left axis, and volume goes under the horizontal axis of the diagram. Sal draws the diagram, and simulates an energy transfer to prove the point.
Linear Functions: Mystery Liquids
Students will collect mass and volume data for two mystery liquids, create scatterplots and graphs, calculate linear models, and interpret their results.
Fun With Food
Students participate in hands-on scientific experiments relying solely on household kitchen materials.
It's Clean, Fresh and only Three Billion Years Old - Water!
Young scholars engage in a lesson which explores the wate cycle. They get to see some very entertaining video, do fun hands-on activities and gain a better understanding of evaporation, condensation, precipitation and collection.
Students differentiate the different phases of matter. For this chemistry lesson, students conduct several hands-on exercises to discover how matter transforms when mixed together. They identify the different stages in the water cycle.
Learners solve problems involving gas laws. In this chemistry lesson, students compare the properties of ideal and real gases. They explain how volume, pressure and temperature are related.
Fossil Fuels, Who Needs Them
Ninth graders explore how electricity is created and distributed through alternative production methods. Students participate in hands-on activities, research, lecture based instruction, and CD ROM resources.
First graders identify and create simple geometric shapes. Through demonstration and hands-on activities, they identify geometric shapes and create them using math manipulatives. Students improve their positional word vocabulary by using the shape in a puzzle.
Science Lesson Plans
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.
Teach Surface Area and Volume in the Most Engaging Way!
Build a Zarcon-proof home as a math activity that will provide tremendous advantages for engagement, for differentiation, and for mastery of concepts. This activity focuses specifically on surface area and volume using mathematical modeling.
Eighth graders explore the concept of volume and discover how it is different from the other attributes associated with measurement. A basic formula is utilized to calculate the volume of three dimensional figures.
Area and Volume Metric Conversions
Students convert units of area and volume within the metric measurement system. They build models of square and cubic centimeters using centimeter grid paper. Students describe the attributes of the unit and what it measures.
Minimizing Surface Area of a Cylinder With a Fixed Volume
Tenth graders explore the relationship between radius and height of a cylinder. In this geometry lesson, 10th graders investigate minimizing surface area while maintaining a fixed volume. Ti-nspire and appropriate application are required.
Pump Up the Volume
Fourth graders calculate volume. In this volume lesson, 4th graders calculate, estimate, and compare units of volume in English and metric systems.
Volume Of A Cube
Fourth graders find the volume of cubes and cylinders. To determine volume, they fill large cubes with centimeter cubes. They discuss the formula used to find the volume of a cube. Students explore why the solution to the volume of a cube is always a perfect cube. They use nets to discover the formula for finding the volume of cylinders.
When the Snow is as High as an Elephant
Students explore measurements. In this geometry lesson, students investigate the relationship between area, volume and weight. Students practice unit conversion within the context of a hands-on application. Students practice using a ruler and use the collected data to make predictions.
Students analyze convex polyhedra through hands on methods. In this geometrical shapes lesson, students construct paper models of convex polyhedra and identify the different properties including the number of sides, faces and edges.
Geometry of Shape and Size
Students find the volume of different solids. In this geometry instructional activity, students define volume of solids and calculate the volume of a cube, prism, pyramid, cylinder, cone and sphere.
Displacement and Density
High schoolers explore displacement. In this displacement and density lesson, pupils find the volume of irregular shaped objects. Afterward, they determine the volume of containers. They compute the amount of water displacement.
