Volume by Cross Sections
Eleventh and twelfth graders find the volume of figures using cross sections. They use their Ti-Nspire to find the volume of a solid formed by cross sections of a function. Pupils find the integrals of the shapes using cross sections.

Module 5: Modeling with Geometry
Solids come in many shapes and sizes. Using geometry, scholars create two-dimensional cross-sections of various three-dimensional objects. They develop the lesson further by finding the volume of solids. The module then shifts to finding...

Volumes: Solids That are Not Solid of Revolution
Viewers learn how to calculate the volume when the cross section is not a circle by using the same principle as if it was a circle. The video goes through an example of finding the volume of a figure where the cross sections are squares...

Volume by Cross Section: Volume of the Cone
Discover another way to find the volume of a cone. Pupils explore how the area of a cross section changes as it moves through a cone. The interactive uses that knowledge to develop the integral to use to find the volume of the cone....
