              Volume of Similar Shapes and Volume Scale Factor

              Students learn how to calculate the volume scale factor from similar solids to calculate a capacity. As learning progresses they are challenged to find the length and area ratios using the volume scale factor.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate the volume scale factor given two corresponding lengths in similar solids.
              • Most students should be able to derive and apply the volume scale factor to calculate unknown volumes in similar solids
              • Some students should be able to derive and apply the volume and length scale factors to calculate unknown measurements in solid shapes.
