8.G.9 Day 4

Volume Of A Cone.

  • Begin by showing students the video of the cone pouring water into the cylinder.
    • Have them hypothesize at how many cones it takes.
    • Show them the 2nd act.
  • From here try to have students derive the formula for the volume of a cone based on what we know about cylinders.
  • After students successfully find the formula then they can practice several basic cone problems.
  • Students will then step up to more complex problems including composite figures with cones and cylinders.

So, what do you think ?
