# 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.

#### How to Draw a Venn Diagram to Calculate Probabilities

There are three common ways to organise data that fall into multiple sets: two-way tables, frequency diagrams and Venn diagrams.  Having blogged about frequency diagrams before I thought I would write about how to draw a Venn Diagram to calculate probabilities. Recapping Two-Way Tables This activity works well to review two-way tables from the previous […]
