A little background


  • Students write rules to express functions related to geometry.
  • Students review what they know about volume with respect to rectangular prisms and further develop their conceptual understanding of volume by comparing the liquid contained within a solid to the volume of a standard rectangular prism (i.e., a prism with base area equal to one).
  • Students know the volume formulas for cones and cylinders.
  • Students apply the formulas for volume to real-world and mathematical problems.
  • Students know the volume formula for a sphere as it relates to a right circular cylinder with the same diameter and height.
  • Students apply the formula for the volume of a sphere to real-world and mathematical problems.
