# Volume – Prism, Cylinder and Sphere

MATHEMATICS

SECOND TERM

WEEK

PRIMARY

THEME: MEASUREMENT

TOPIC: Volume – Prism, Cylinder and Sphere

LEARNING AREA

Lesson One – Volume of Prism

Lesson Two – Volume of Cylinder

Lesson Three – Volume of Sphere

Lesson Four – Revision/Test

TIME – 40 Minutes each.

LEARNING OUTCOME

By the end of the lesson, pupils should be able to:

1. calculate volume of prisms, cylinders and spheres.
2. solve some quantitative aptitude problem on volume of prism, cylinder and sphere.

RATIONALE

Any solid with a uniform cross – section is called a prism. The volume of an object is the amount of space it occupies. A cuboid is a prism where any face can be the cross – section. A prism with a circular cross – section is called a cylinder. The concept of volume can be developed using cubes and enable pupils to understand and appreciate the amount of space taken up by an object.

LEARNING MATERIALS

The teacher will teach the lesson with the aid of:

Balls

Cylindrical

Tins

Cartoon (box)

Triangular prisms

PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE

Pupils know and can describe the objects of cube, cuboid and cylinder.
