Background Tutorials

Know the formulas for the volumes of cones, cylinders, and spheres and use them to solve real-world and mathematical problems.

Soda cans, coffee cans, and some candles are just a few examples of cylinders. In this tutorial, you'll see what defines a cylinder. You'll also see the different parts of a cylinder. Take a look!

Know precise definitions of angle, circle, perpendicular line, parallel line, and line segment, based on the undefined notions of point, line, distance along a line, and distance around a circular arc.

Circles are a fundamental part of math! In this tutorial, you'll be introduced to circles and see the different parts of a circle such as the diameter, radius, and chord. Check out this tutorial to learn about circles!

Further Exploration

Know the formulas for the volumes of cones, cylinders, and spheres and use them to solve real-world and mathematical problems.

The volume of a cylinder is the amount of space that will fit inside it. You can use the formula for the volume of a cylinder to find that amount! In this tutorial, see how to use that formula and the radius and height of the cylinder to find the volume. Check it out!
