Unit 6: Cylinders and Cones and Spheres!


In this unit, you will use prior knowledge to develop and compare the formulas for the volumes of cones, cylinders and spheres. You will then use that knowledge to solve real-world and mathematical problems. Throughout the unit, opportunity is provided to further develop: your mathematical skill fluency to perform mathematics, your conceptual understanding about mathematics, and your problem solving abilities to connect mathematics to real-world situations.
