Students learn how to calculate the volume of a square based pyramid.

As learning progresses they are challenged to consider composite shapes involving cuboids and to find the height using Pythagoras' Theorem.

**Differentiated Learning Objectives**

- All students should be able to calculate the volume of a square based pyramid
- Most students should be able to calculate the volume of a compound shape involving a square based pyramid.
- Some students should be able to calculate the volume of a frustum.
