Week #April 4-8
Unit of InstructionUnit 7: Three-Dimensional Measures
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS.912.G-GMD.1.1:  Give an informal argument for the formulas for the circumference of a circle, area of a circle, volume of a cylinder, pyramid, and cone. (Use dissection arguments, Cavalieri’s principle, and informal limit arguments.)

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

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria
  • identify the base for prisms, cylinders, pyramids, and cones.
  • calculate the area of the base (B) for prisms, cylinders, pyramids, and cones.
  • calculate the volume of a prism using the formula V = Bh and the volume of a cylinder V = πr2h, where B is the area of the base and h is height of the solid.
  • defend the statement, “The formula for the volume of a cylinder (or cone) is basically the same as the formula for the volume of a prism (or pyramid).”
  • explain that the volume of a pyramid (or cone) is 1/3 the volume of a prism (or cylinder) with the same base area and height.  (Demonstrate rule for students, for example with liquids or bird seed.)
  • use Cavalieri’s Principle to demonstrate that a right prism (or cylinder) and a slanted prism (or cylinder) have the same volume when the base areas and heights are the same.
  • 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.
