Volume

Finding the volumes of right triangular prisms, cones, cylinders & spheres using formulas. Solving real-world problems based on volume calculations.

Mapped to CCSS Section# 6.G.A.2, 7.G.B.6, 8.G.C.9

Find the volume of a right rectangular prism with fractional edge lengths by packing it with unit cubes of the appropriate unit fraction edge lengths, and show that the volume is the same as would be found by multiplying the edge lengths of the prism. Apply the formulas V = l w h and V = b h to find volumes of right rectangular prisms with fractional edge lengths in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems. Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, volume and surface area of two- and three-dimensional objects composed of triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, cubes, and right prisms. Know the formulas for the volumes of cones, cylinders, and spheres and use them to solve real-world and mathematical problems.
