Intro Pyramids, Cones, Spheres, Sectors, Arcs

These sheets are used during the first lesson of each topic. They are set up to show the formula used, two worked examples (that you do as a group on the board and they fill in on the sheet) then a selection of questions to start off the topic. The idea is these are all topics that require substitution into a formula and have solids (or sectors) that students won’t necessarily be able to draw examples of. I like to have these as the first page so that they have strong notes to refer back to and even if they don’t draw any diagrams for subsequent questions, they at least have the key formula and some examples to revise from.

Topic include:
Volume of a Pyramid
Volume of a Cone
Surface Area of a Cone
Volume & Surface Area of Spheres
Arc Lengths
Sector Areas

Answers also included.
