Students will know - that different shapes can have the same volume how to calculate the volume of a cylinder how to calculate the area of a circle how to estimate the volume of a cylinder be able to apply knowledge of cylinder volume to everyday situations
Students will be able to - identify and use the formula for calculating the volume of a cylinder convert between cubic centimetres and millilitres estimate the volume of any cylinder accurately measure various objects such as radius, height, areas and volume.
Volume and Surface Area YouTube Video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZPeEBigUpk POSITIVESNEGATIVES A beginning to help expand knowledge PK Only useful for visual learners Very simple to understand PK Doesn’t demonstrate in a real life context DK Step by step DK No explanations Shows different shapes Visually engaging (colours etc.) Short and to the point, no unnecessary information PK
Volume and Surface Area Resource Site & Video http://www.mathexpression.com/volume-of-a-cylinder.html POSITIVESNEGATIVES Thoroughly explained DK Voice is hard to understand at times Useful for Auditory and Visual Learners Doesn’t demonstrate in a real life context DK Explained one step at a time DK It’s a very lengthy video to watch Shows examples with set measurements PK All working shown to help learners understand clearly DK Both site and video can help the understanding of the topic DK
Popcorn as Cylinders illuminations.nctm.org/Lessons/Popcorn/Popcorn-AS-Cylinders.pdf POSITIVESNEGATIVES Easily worked through Does not demonstrate how to find the volume of a cylinder DK Good real life example DK Could take a lot of time Helps learners understand how cylinders can be manipulated to have the same volume DK Imperial measurements. (could be changed to metric though) Useful for kinaesthetic learners with diagrams and hands on activity to help engage students Does not demonstrate how to find the area of a circle DK Encourages students to estimate volumes of cylinders DK PK Builds on prior knowledge of cylinder volumes Students need to measure and construct cylinders PK
What is Pi & Radius? How do you work out the area of a circle? Does anyone know how to work out the volume of a cylinder? Volume how to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vZPeEBigUpk
