# 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
