This Volume of Composite Shapes handout & reference also includes:
It's the parts that make the whole. Learners apply volume formulas to composite figures to find the total volume of the figure. Previous lessons in this series taught the methods for finding the volume and/or dimensions of three-dimensional objects. Now scholars put those concepts together to work with the composite figures.
- Expect scholars to draw and label dimensions of each figure before making calculations
- Video requires Internet access
- Pupils should be proficient with using the volume formulas of spheres, cylinders, and cones
- Uses context throughout the video and problem set to give learners a frame of reference
- Provides an answer key for the practice problems
- Practice worksheet does not provide enough room for drawing the figures and showing calculations
