How to Use This Page

This page contains a "menu" of lessons and activities for this week's learning at home. You will find the objectives: the specific skills that your child will be able to do. Then you will find a selection of lessons and activities which help your child master those skills. If you run into technical issues or other difficulties with any of these, simply move on and choose another. These activities fit into the Sample Dailly Schedule.

Please keep the following in mind:

  • Your child DOES NOT have to complete all activities listed for each subject.
  • Activities have been identified to give your child choice and variety.

8th Grade Math

Week 2 April 6 – 10

Math Objectives: Students will be able to:

  • know the volume formulas for cones and cylinders.
  • know the volume formula for a sphere as it relates to a right circular cylinder with the same diameter and height.
apply the formula for the volume of a sphere to real-world and mathematical problems.

Key Vocabulary/Formulas

Volume (V) - The amount a container can hold. Volume is often measured in cubic units, such as cm3, cubic inches, or cubic feet.

Cylinder Formula-   V = πr2h or replace π with 3.14 and use V = 3.14r2h

Sphere Formula- V = (4πr3)/3 or replace π with 3.14 and use V = (4•3.14•r3)/3

Pi (π) - approximated as 3.14, gotten by dividing the measure of the distance around a circle by the measure of the diameter across the circle, irrational number (meaning it keeps going forever)

Cone Formula-   V = (πr2h)/3 or replace π with 3.14 and use V = (3.14r2 h)/3

Radius (r): distance from the edge to the center of a circle; Diameter: distance from one edge of a circle to the other, cutting through the center, cut it in half to get a radius; Height (h): how tall a cylinder or cone is at a right angle.
