Hands On Math: Volume of a Cylinder Made of Jello!
Included in this download are 4 posters. Posters include pictures and formulas for volume, lateral surface area and total surface area of a right square pyramid, a right circular cylinder, a right circular cone and a sphere.
Comparing Volumes of Cylinders, Spheres, and Cones- In this interactive from Annenberg Learner’s Learning Math, compare the volumes of a cylinder, cone, and sphere that all have the same radius and height. In the accompanying classroom activity, students fill cylinders, spheres, and cones with water in order to compare volumes of shapes with equal height and radius. They use the interactive to further explore the concept.
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 leave feedback on this product and consider following my store as I work to increase my middle school math products.
The formula for the volume of a sphere is 4⁄3πr³. For a cylinder, the formula is πr²h. A cone is ⅓ the volume of a cylinder, or 1⁄3πr²h. This song’s hook makes these formulas easy to remember. The song also gives examples of objects of these shapes.
