              Volume of a Cylinder

              Students learn how to calculate the volume of a cylinder both in terms of pi and as a decimal to three significant figures.  Learning progresses from working with simple cylinders to finding the volume of more complex cylindrical shapes.The start of the lesson recaps finding the total surface area of a cylinder in terms of pi.  At the end of the lesson students are challenged to find the cost of filling a cylindrical pit with sand.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to find the volume of a cylinder in terms of pi.
              • Most students should be able to calculate the volume of a cylinder correct to three significant figures.
              • Some students should be able to calculate the volume of complex cylindrical shapes.
