Cuboid VolumesQuick View

Cuboid Volumes

A colourful powerpoint and three worksheets to introduce or revise how to calculate the volume of a cuboid or cube using the formula. It begins with examples showing how centimetre cubes fit into larger boxes to explain where the formula comes from. There are practical examples plus extension activities for working out missing dimensions of sides and cubing numbers to find the volume of cubes. Enlarging shapes and converting cubic units are also mentioned. The three worksheets cover three different levels of difficulty and have problems similar to those in the powerpoint.

Volume & Surface Area: Prisms, Pyramids, Cones & Spheres

Three activities aimed at GCSE pupils working on the surface area and volume of prisms, pyramids, cones and spheres. 1. Surface Area of Cuboids Odd One Out In this activity students must decide which cuboid in each row has a different surface area to the others. There is also an extension activity based around finding the missing dimensions of cuboids given their surface areas. 2. Volume and Surface Area of Prisms Worksheet This worksheet asks students to find the surface area and volume of a range of different prisms, including a cylinder cut in half. The worksheet is designed to make it easy to check for understanding, since students must record their answers in the table given. 3. Volume of Pyramids, Cones & Spheres: Which volume is largest? This activity requires students to compare solids and decide, in each row, which solid is largest? Includes prisms, pyramids, cones and spheres. Now Updated To Include Additional worksheets on spheres, cuboids, prisms, cones & cylinders.

Volume of robots - volume problem solving!Quick View

Volume of robots - volume problem solving!

Work out the volume of the three robots (one fairly easy, one medium, one quite tricky). The robots are made of cubes, cuboids and cylinders. The students will need to know that the volume of a cylinder can be calculated as the area of the cross-section multiplied by the length/height. This worked really well with both my KS3 and KS4 classes and is a fun way to practice finding volumes of compound solids. The last robot has some tricky metric conversions of length and area also. Tables are provided for each robot to scaffold the calculation of the total volume, and answers are provided. Worksheet provided in both PDF and Publisher versions.

Volume of cuboidsQuick View

Volume of cuboids

A complete lesson on volumes of cuboids whose sides are whole numbers of centimetres, although I’ve thrown in elements of listing combinations systematically and forming algebraic expressions to make the topic more challenging and stimulating. I would personally do a lesson on volume as a concept before this lesson (focusing on one shape type). Activities included: Starter: A simple prompt for pupils to think about properties of a cuboid. Main: A slide giving an initial definition of a cubic centimetre as a cube with sides of 1cm. This is obviously a specific case of a cubic centimetre, but it helps pupils understand conceptually the rule for calculating volumes of cuboids with sides that are integer numbers of centimetres! Then a couple of related examples of volumes of cuboids. A prompt for pupils to try to work out the volume of a 4 by 3 by 2 cm cuboid, followed by a further prompt for them to see three different ways of doing it (see cover slide) A prompt for pupils to investigate what other cuboids can be made with a volume of 24 cubic centimetres, possibly using multilink cubes. Plus a few suggested follow-up questions that give pupils a chance to make conjectures and test them. The set of integer solutions are then presented as a systematic list, at which point you could explain how this list has been made, or let pupils think about that. Pupils are then given a similar but bigger problem - of listing all the cuboids with integer sides and a volume of 216 cubic centimetres. For pupils that finish this quickly, there is a related set of problems to do, with an algebra element (but no solving of equations), and the potential for pupils to create their own similar questions. Plenary: A quick look at other units of volume (litre and cubic metre), that also give a chance to check pupils are clear on the basic method. No printing really needed, although the final extension task could be given out separately as a worksheet. Please review if you buy as any feedback is appreciated!

Volume of prismsQuick View

Volume of prisms

A complete lesson on calculating volumes of prisms, probably best aimed at a higher ability group. One activity is designed to be used with multilink cubes and isometric paper. I’ve decided I don’t want to present a formal ‘rule’ for this topic any more, so there is no direct reference to V=A x L and in fact most examples look at multiple ways of calculating the volume. Activities included: Starter: Some basic area questions. Main: Animations to define or remind pupils what a prism is, followed by a prompt for pupils to explore what prisms they can make using 12 multilink cubes. Followed by a prompt for pupils to reflect on the distinctions between the possible answers. This could be extended further, with pupils trying to justify finding or having found all possible answers. A prompt for pupils to work out the volume of a prism made up of smaller cubes, followed by a prompt to ensure that all pupils consider four particular ways of finding the volume (see cover slide). The four methods are then nicely animated. A prompt for looking at a triangular prism, followed by a closer look at two methods for finding the volume. A final example/prompt, looking at a cylinder (only one method). After this, pupils could reflect on the methods seen, and possibly look at what’s the same, what’s different. Pupils are then given four related ‘challenges’ to do; one on cuboids, two on cylinders and one that’s entirely open-ended. I’d use this last task as a basis for a final discussion or showcase of pupils’ efforts. Possible key questions and follow-up tasks are given in the comments boxes at the bottom of slides.
