              Volume of a Cone

              Students learn how to calculate the volume of a cone using the base area and perpendicular height.  As learning progresses they are taught to use Pythagoras' Theorem to find the perpendicular height when the slanted length is given.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate the volume of a cone when given its perpendicular height using the formula.
              • Most students should be able to calculate the volume of a cone using Pythagoras’ Theorem to calculate the perpendicular height.
              • Some students should be able to calculate the volume of a frustum as the difference in volume between two cones

              Area of Compound Shapes

              To find the area of compound shapes students need to understand what the word compound means.  Therefore, I ask students to discuss in pairs a definition for the word compound and to extend it to include the shapes below.  As a result of their learning in science students agree that a compound can be defined […]
