Building on previous lessons, students use their knowledge of circumference and area to devise their own equation for finding the surface area of a cylinder. Chris engages his students as a class and in small groups, focusing on the thought process involved in applying what they know to a new problem.

Students learn about the fundamental concepts important to fluid power, which includes both pneumatic (gas) and hydraulic (liquid) systems. Both systems contain four basic components: reservoir/receiver, pump/compressor, valve, cylinder. Students learn background information about fluid power—both pneumatic and hydraulic systems—including everyday applications in our world (bulldozers, front-end loaders, excavators, chair height lever adjustors, door closer dampers, dental drills, vehicle brakes) and related natural laws. After a few simple teacher demos, they learn about the four components in all fluid power systems, watch two 26-minute online videos about fluid power, complete a crossword puzzle of fluid power terms, and conduct a task card exercise. This prepares them to conduct the associated hands-on activity, using the Portable Fluid Power Demonstrator (teacher-prepared kits) to learn more about the properties of gases and liquids in addition to how forces are transmitted and multiplied within these systems.

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.

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.

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.

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.
