Background Tutorials

Identify the shapes of two-dimensional cross-sections of prisms, pyramids, cylinders, cones, and spheres and identify three-dimensional objects generated by rotations of two-dimensional shapes

Understanding solids is a building block for finding their lateral area, surface area, and volume. In this tutorial, you'll see examples of solids and learn their different parts. Take a look!

Further Exploration

Apply the formulas for the volume of three-dimensional figures, including prisms, pyramids, cones, cylinders, spheres, and composite figures, to solve problems using appropriate units of measure

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!

To find the volume of a cone, you need to plug in the measurement for the height of the cone and the radius of the base into the formula for the volume of a cone. Then simplify to get your answer. This tutorial shows you the entire process step-by-step!
