Big Ideas: All formulas for volume are built from V=Bh. Volume is the amount of space inside a three dimensional object. This lesson builds upon the work students did in previous grades with geometric shapes and formulas, such as the work for 8.G.C.9, where students used volume formulas to solve problems. As students complete this lesson, a firmer grasp of the big ideas should be seen, and students should be able to more broadly apply their knowledge to real-world situations. Vocabulary: volume, cubic units, cylinder, cone, capacity Special Materials: calculator
