- Today I am learning…to write equations from text and calculate volume.
- So I can…compare sizes of different 3-dimensional objects.
- I know I understand when…I can show my steps and use appropriate units to compare volumes and draw conclusions of magnitude.
Know the formulas for the volumes of cones, cylinders, and spheres and use them to solve real-world and mathematical problems.
Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. .
