Unit 5, Lesson 16# Finding Cone Dimensions

Open Up Resources 40 min(s)

Let's figure out the dimensions of cones. Learning targets: students can find missing information of about a cone if they know its volume and some other information. As they did with cylinders in a previous lesson, students in this lesson use the formula to find the radius or height of a cone given its volume and the other dimension. Then they apply their understanding about the volumes of cylinders and cones to decide which popcorn container and price offers the best deal.
