Students learn that the formula for the volume of a prism is length times width times height, so the volume of a prism that has a length of 25 inches, a width of 4 inches, and a height of 9 inches, is 25 times 4 times 9, or 900 cubic inches. Students... also learn that the formula for the volume of a cube is side length cubed, and the formula for the volume of a pyramid is 1/3 times the area of the base times the height of the pyramid. Students are then asked to find the volume of prisms, cubes, and pyramids. Video is good quality and good for all students as review or initial learning of the concept.[more]

The Instructor uses a geometric electronic sketchpad to demonstrate how to find the volume of a rectangular prism. In this video the formula for volume of a rectangular prism is given. They remind you that a rectangular prism is simply a box-like sh...ape. They then solve two different examples. Video is good quality and good for all students as review or initial learning of the concept.[more]

This 22 minute video does a great job of showing how to think about a cylinder as a special kind of box where the bases are just circles. This helps students understand the volume formula for a cylinder, as it is just base times height. All steps inv...olved with finding the volume are explained using a narrator and a smart board.[more]

The presenter in this video explains the distinction between how to find the surface area of a three-dimensional shape vs the volume of a three-dimensional shape. (02:16)

The problem presented in this video allows students to find evaluate an expressions with given values to their variables. The presenter explains how to find the volume of a perfect square. (01:32)

In this video, the presenter explains how to find the volume of cylinders and how to estimate to find the materials inside of a cylinder (estimating π to be 3). (01:23)

The Instructor uses an electronic sketchpad to demonstrate how to find the volume of a cylinder. This video gives the formula for finding the volume of a cylinder. It then applies the formula to two cylinders that are already drawn on the screen. Vi...deo is good quality and good for all students as review or initial learning of the concept.[more]

In this video about volume they discuss what volume is, the equation to find volume for a rectangular solid is length time width times height. The problem they do breaks up a figure into different pieces. This what they did, they broke the figure up ...into three different solids, the first solid is 20 inches by 20 inches. In the second figure they had to figure out the length using subtraction. Then they show you the dimension of the shape. The width for the figure is 3 inches. Then they figured out the volume for each figure and then added them together. They also explained how volume is measured in inches or cm cubed. Video is good quality and good for all students as review or initial learning of the concept.[more]

A lesson about the volume of a cylinder. A math tutor explains that a cylinder is pi-radius-square times height and explains the definition of the volume of a cylinder. He shows examples on a whiteboard. (01:41)

Animated text on slides with narration. Explains what a prism is and how to determine the volume. Examples are given using the formula: volume = length X width X height. Grades 5-10. 4:17 min.
