Cavalieri’s Principle (Volume)

This Cavalieri’s Principle (Volume) lesson plan also includes:

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.
