A structured approach to teaching volume can make it so much easier for students to understand! These materials lend themselves to use in interactive notebooks.
These foldable notes, examples, and practice problems feature a structured step by step format to guide student thinking as they calculate the volume of each figure. Students will find the volumes of prisms, pyramids, cylinders, cones, and spheres. Students must determine which measurements they must use as extra information is given in some of the diagrams.
