Volume of Cylinders, Cones and Spheres Practice
This resource can be used for practice with calculating and comparing the volume of cylinders, cones and spheres. Students will explore, discover and discuss
the relationship between all three shapes.
The same radius and height are used to determine the volume for a cylinder, cone and sphere. After completing the calculations, comparisons can be made between the volume of the shapes. Two discoveries may be made.
❶ One comparison students may make is between the shapes. If the shapes have the same height and radius, the cylinder will be three times the cone’s volume. The sphere’s volume will be twice the cone’s volume.
❷ Students might also compare how the volume changed when the radius and height were doubled and tripled. For example, if the radius and height are doubled, the volume will be 8 times as large. If the radius and height tripled, the volume will be 27 times as large.
Practice with vocabulary is important. Students will use a word bank to identify the correct geometry vocabulary word for ten definitions. Students can use a highlighter to find the vocabulary word in the word search. The ten words include:
