High schoolers explore the concept of volume.  In this volume instructional activity, students use their Ti-Nspire to maximize the volume of a box.  High schoolers determine the dimensions that will yield the greatest volume.  Students graph the volume of the box as length and width vary.
High schoolers calculate the SA/V ratio and volume of phenophthalien agar that are cut into different shapes. They then let ammonia diffuse into the various pieces of agar and determine the effect that SA/V had on the rate of diffusion.
Scholars explore relationships between units of measure and objects to be measured. They develop an understanding of length, area, and volume. Finally, students identify and develop their spatial sense and apply appropriate techniques, tools, and formulas to determine measurements.
For this Avogadro's law worksheet, students read about gases and learn that under the same conditions of pressure and temperature gases with equal volumes have the same number of moles of particles. Students use Avogadro's law to solve 8 problems.
Here is a planet activity in which learners read about organic molecules detected through spectral lines of the planet Osiris. They calculate the mass, the volume and the densities of common ingredients for planets including Osiris and Jupiter.
In this burette worksheet, students learn how to properly use a burette to perform a titration and they run 4 trials and indicate their data. Students find the initial volume, the final volume, the titre volume and the mean titre volume for each trial to find the end-point of the titrations.
High schoolers explore the concept of volume.  In this volume lesson, students use their Ti-Nspire to determine the volume of hay bales.  High schoolers use diameters and radii to determine the volume of hay bales as the radius increases.
Upper graders explore the topic of volume. For this math lesson plan, pupils count volume in cubic units, multiply to find volume, estimate volume, write a multiplication sentence to find the volume, and make a cost analysis of different brands of popping corn.
Pupils explore the concept of volume and surface area. In this volume and surface area activity, students find the volume of a rectangular prism, cylinder, and cone. Pupils use sine and cosine to aid in finding the volume and surface area.
The volume of the tower in Pisa is the same whether it is leaning or not. Your collaborative geometry learners will use manipulatives to discover that the volume of shapes (i.e. pyramids, prisms, cylinders, etc.) are the same, whether they are right or oblique, as long as they have equal altitude and the cross sections parallel to and at the same distance from their respective bases is the same.
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 participate in Density Discoveries, which is a hands-on learning opportunity for students to find the mass, volume, and density of solid matter.
Students use their knowledge of volume and surface area through this fun, hands-on activity.
Fourth graders find the volume of solids. In groups, 4th graders use spinners to determine the dimensions of solids. They construct the shapes, creating a model of the figure Students count the cubes in the model to determine the volume. They participate in three additional activities to find volume.
Students use knowledge of area and volume to explore minimum and maximum. They create models and determine a "best" shape for getting the maximum volume or minimum area.
High schoolers find the surface area and volume of cells.  In this surface area and volume of cells lesson, students find the volume and surface area of different shape cell models.  High schoolers discuss which cells', spherical or cubic, volume and surface area increased at faster rate as the cell's size increased.  Students make a scatter plot comparing the area and volume of the spherical cells to the cubic cells.
The students are able to use a formula to calculate the volume of cuboids by measuring the length of each of the three dimensions. They also investigate the relationship between milliliters and cubic centimeters.
Students participate in several density lab activities in order to clarify the misconceptions that solids sink and liquids float. Students work with triple beam balances to find mass of objects to calculate density.
Go beyond the basic formulas and uncover the surface area and volume of 3-D shapes with this comprehensive and organized worksheet packet. The problems include the basic formula computations while also challenging your learners to derive formulas and practice with complex shapes. Each lesson refers to a specific video; two of the videos are included, and although the others are unavailable, supplementary videos or lessons can be provided in their place. These are great problems that can be used individually or together to challenge your learners and test their skills with area and volume.
How much carpet goes on the floor and how much space will be available for storage in a game closet that they help design? With this task, collaborators use formulas for area and volume. They also complete a Venn diagram comparing these two measurements.
