232. Steps in Volume

This is a quick little post to give you a nifty little resource inspired by the ideas of Bruno Reddy (@MrReddyMaths). I suggest you visit his website at: http://mrreddy.com/.

I’ve been teaching my class how to calculate the volume of spheres, cones and pyramids. They really like these staged worksheets. You could print them out as they are, but I personally print them as A5 booklets which fit into their books.

    Although I like the images of the pyramid and the cone inside their respective prisms, the image of the sphere inside a cylinder doesn’t make sense as the volume is 4/3 of its surrounding prism. Therefore a cylinder with the same radius as height should sit inside the sphere.

      Fair point – to be honest it’s down to the image I could find at the time. However I no longer have to use digital images due to changes in image generation for the site.
      Thank you for your feedback.
