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
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.
How to help students learn and memorize volume formulas for cylinders, cones, and spheres. Includes 2 great freebies: I Can topic overview perfect for use in math interactive notebooks, and a graphic organizer that helps my students remember the formulas. Enjoy!
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)
