Q4, W1: Geometry (March 25-March 29)

TeacherKristin Andreason
Subject AreaGeometry Honors
Grade Level8
Week #March 25-29
Unit of InstructionUnit 7: Three-Dimensional Measures
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS.912.G-GMD.1.3:  Use volume formulas for cylinders, pyramids, cones, and spheres to solve problems.

MAFS.912.G-MG.1.2:  Apply concepts of density based on area and volume in modeling situations (e.g., BTUs per cubic foot).



Learning Targets and Learning Criteria
  • calculate the volume of a cylinder, pyramid, cone, and sphere and use the volume formulas to solve problems.
  • find the volume when one or more dimensions are changed.
  • convert units of measure.
  • apply volume involving density in real-world context.
Classroom Activities


  • Students will take notes in their ISN on surface area and volume of spheres.
  • Students will do a Kuta software worksheet on spheres.
  • Students will begin practice problems on the volume of composite figures.
  • Students will take notes on population density.


  • Bell ringer on population density.
  • Students will finish working on the volume of composite figures problems.


  • We will finish and go over the composite figures problems.  I will give students the DIA Review on Area and Volume to do some additional practice.
  • Students will work in groups to do the review.
Assignments Due
  • Spheres worksheet due on March 27.
