This resource allows students to discover the 3 volume formulas through a process of plugging in the given dimensions and given volume. Going through this process will increase the retention of the formulas, and is much more engaging than just telling the students what the formulas are.
As long as students can plug in, they will be rock stars. The back page of the worksheet allows students to begin memorizing and practicing extracting "h" and "r" from the shapes.My students felt excited as they correctly identified the formulas for each shape.
*Note: 3.14 was used as the approximation of pi. The prism is used for modeling purposes, since students will likely have already seen V = lwh from 7th grade math or 8th grade science.
