This inquiry activity allows students to discover the relationship between the volume of a cone and the volume of a cylinder. After the formula is derived, students are given additional opportunities to apply the formula to realistic scenarios.Please lea
Surface Area and Volume Formulas for Geometric Shapes
Surface Area and Volume Formulas for Geometric Shapes: Surface Area of An Elipse
This page examines the properties of a right circular cylinder. A cylinder has a radius (r) and a height (h) (see picture below). This shape is similar to a soda can. The surface area is the area of the top and bottom circles (which are the same), and the area of the rectangle (label that wraps around the can)
grade students will apply formulas for volume of cylinders, cones and spheres to solve real-world and mathematical problems. Suggestions are given as to how to introduce and relate the volumes of cylinders and cones.
