# Illuminations: Hay Bale Farmer

In this lesson for the middle grades, learners calculate and compare volumes of cylinders and rectangular prisms, using bales of hay as the common unit. Students must use mathematics to explain why one shape of hay bale may be preferable economically to the other. But wait.....the round bales don't fit in a barn as well. Storing bales outside results in loss of product due to mold, which students must consider. The activity was developed to promote understanding of volume through real-life scenarios. The resource is aligned to NCTM standards and includes lesson objectives, teaching tips, and a printable student worksheet. This resource is part of a larger collection of lessons, labs, and activities developed by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM). (less)

# Illuminations: Popcorn, Anyone?

In this lesson for grades 6-12, learners explore the relationship between dimension and volume. Using colored paper, students create two rectangular prisms and two cylinders to determine which holds more popcorn. They then justify their conclusions by analyzing the formulas and identifying dimensions with the largest impact on volume. <b><i>Editor's Note:</b> This activity presents an excellent opportunity for students to gain real insight into why increasing the radius of a cylinder has more impact on volume than increased height. It will also promote understanding of why the formulas for calculating volume work.</i> This resource includes lesson objectives, teaching tips, and student worksheets with answer keys provided. It is part of a larger collection of activities developed by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM). (less)

In this activity, learners make different shapes that hold exactly one mole of gas (air). Learners are provided a face that they must measure and use as one of the sides of their three-dimensional container. Learners will discover that the containers may end up a variety of boxes and cylinders each with different starting faces but all with the same volume. (less)

In this activity, learners use a straight line to learn about circles. Learners measure and record the diameter and circumference of different sized cylindrical objects on a chart. Learners then plot the diameters and circumferences on a graph and calculate the slope to discover the linear relationship between the two proprieties. (less)

Working in teams, students learn the basics of fluid power design using the PFPD as their investigative platform. They investigate the similarities and differences between using pneumatic and hydraulic power in the PFPD. With the main components of the PFPD already assembled, student groups determine the correct way to connect the valves to the actuators using colored, plastic tubing. Once connected, they compete in timed challenges to test their abilities to separate material out of containers using the PFPDs. NOTE: No special pre-requisite knowledge is required for students to be successful in this activity. (less)

An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrate the volume of a cylinder. A cylinder is shown where the height and radius can both be changed by dragging. The volume is continuously recalculated as you drag. The calculations can be turned off for class discussion. The web page has the formula for the volume calculation, and a discussion about the subtle distinction between the volume of a cylinder and the volume inside the cylinder. The web page also has links to other pages defining the various properties of an ellipse and to some ellipse constructions. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector. This resource is a component of the Math Open Reference Interactive Geometry textbook project at http://www.mathopenref.com. (less)
