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.

Volume of Cubes and Cuboids

Students learn how to find the volume of cubes and cuboids using the area of the cross-section and depth. Learning progresses from counting the cubes inside a shape to calculating the volume using a formula. More able students find the volume of prisms. Differentiated Learning Objectives All students should be able to find the volume of a cube by counting. Most students should be able to calculate the volume of a cuboid as the product of length, width and height. Some students should be able to calculate the volume of a prism.

Emotional Literacy and Social Skills crafts Volume 1Quick View

Emotional Literacy and Social Skills crafts Volume 1

Children relax when they are working on a craft and to be honest I do not know of a child who does not enjoy crafts especially when it is with someone who is interested in them and interested in what they say. They will open up to you and talk freely whilst enjoying themselves. These activities are also perfect for an ELSA or Teaching assistant who has to do a one off session with a child or who has to work reactively to a situation. When children succeed in an activity then their self efficacy increases. They begin to believe in themselves. Along with your encouragement and praise they will begin to have a ‘can do’ attitude. It takes time but if anyone ever says to you that what you are doing is just ‘crafting and having fun’ WHAT are they learning? You can tell them. The resource includes: Card crafts (20 activities) Templates (13 templates or resources) Front cover, contents sheet

Volume of Triangular Prisms - Powerpoint and good scaffolded worksheet

I designed this powerpoint to teach my Y7 low ability set how to find the volume of triangular prisms (need calculators). It worked extremely well and students enjoyed the challenge - especially when the answers cam out as long decimals. The worksheet contains some converting questions from cm to m - be sure to teach metric conversions first. Then I played one of my logo games to end the lesson - please see my other resources for all the Logo Games!! ENJOY :)
