Unit 8: Volume of Cones, Pyramids, and Spheres
Lesson 1 of 6

Objective: SWBAT visualize sections of a pyramid, find their dimensions and use informal reasoning to explain how shifting the apex of a pyramid affects its volume. Students will understand that parallel sections of a pyramid are similar and the meaning of Cavalieri’s Principle.

Big Idea: Students are introduced to Cavalieri’s Principle as they compare the volumes of two heaps of treasure—one layer at a time.
