Volume and surface area of spheres
Complete lesson on finding the volume and surface area of a sphere.

I did this with a high ability class so included worded questions and more challenging questions - rather than just a full worksheet where students were just changing the value of r and typing into their calculator.

> Starter on finding area and circumference of circles including working backwards from area/circumference to find diameter extension. Complete solutions.
> 2 simple examples finding volume and surface area of a sphere. Carefully going through how it should be entered in a calculator.
> Worksheet with functional differentiated questions
> Extension task
> Full solutions provided
> Real life spheres - is anything really a sphere? We are really estimating.
