MSS1/L2.9

MSS1/L2.9 Understand and use given formulae for finding volumes of regular shapes (e.g. a cuboid or cylinder)
(a) know that measurements must be in the same units before calculating volume
(b) recognise the symbol for pi, and know its approximate value
(c) know how to make substitutions in a formula and work out the result

10 very useful multiple choice, topic-based Functional Maths questions.
The focus is on perimeter and area but there is one volume question.
Ideal for assessment or revision.

Editor’s note
No answer sheet.
This is just one of a set of 10 worksheets.

I made this resource to check prior learning of a group I took over from another lecturer.
It could work well for assessment, revision or as an extension task.

An original and very functional volume / area / converting measures task conceived during the heavy snows of winter 2010/11. It gives a new slant to snow clearing and could easily be adapted to different areas of driveways, paths, etc. Fully mapped to Functional Maths and adult numeracy.

I worked with a plumbing tutor at Wiltshire College to write the attached task for a group of apprentice plumbers. The group enjoyed working on this. I was inspired to produce this after reading and using the Air Conditioner task contributed by Leia Fee (see below).
