Mathematics 8 (Grade 7/8)
Unit 5: Volumes of Solid Figures (8.G)
Students complete their work by solving problems involving cones, cylinders, and spheres. When students learn to solve problems involving volumes of cones, cylinders, and spheres, together with their previous Mathematics 7 work in angle measure, area, surface area and volume, they will have acquired a welldeveloped set of geometric measurement skills.
