Understanding Volume: There are many formulas for volume that may seem overwhelming to learn and memorize! However, most volume formulas follow a pattern that can be easy to follow. If you understand the pattern in finding volume, you can apply it to almost all 3D shapes!
Students will follow the process of finding the area of the base of a 3D shape and multiplying it by the height and any additional factors. By following the patterns of discovering volume, students will gain a better understanding of why volume formulas are the way that they are, rather than just memorizing formulas.
