Topics like volume can be abstract and hard-to-grasp for many of your students who need visual representations and examples of topics in order to understand them.

The following video lesson explores how to use formulas to find the volume of a cylinder in the context of a word problem. You can share it with your visual learners to help them gain a deeper conceptual understanding of volume.

The lesson also includes a free PDF worksheet download that corresponds with the video. You can get it here.


(Learning Standard: Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving volume of cylinders, cones, and spheres.)
