SWBAT solve multi-step problems involving volume.

Big Idea

How do I apply understanding of volume to complex, multi-step problems?

Warm Up

10 minutes

Each day, students complete a Warmup that usually consists of spiraling the previous day's material, in addition to older material.  Warm-up problems also sometimes extend lessons that students have encountered before to more unfamiliar contexts.

I like to review the Gold_Volume_Problems for the huddle for this lesson, because it pushes kids to go "backwards" in the volume formula. The more flexible the students can get in using algebra and geometry concepts to solve problems, the more proficient they will become.


15 minutes

Homework HW129 is to be completed at home and should take students approximately 15 minutes.
