# 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.
