Volume of Pyramids

              Volume of Pyramids

              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.
