Unit 5, Lesson 17# Scaling One Dimension

Open Up Resources 40 min(s)

Represent the relationship between volume of a cylinder or cone and its height as a linear function. Let's see how changing one dimension changes the volume of a shape. Learning targets: students can explain in my own words why changing the height by a scale factor changes the volume by the same scale factor and create a graph the relationship between volume and height for all cylinders (or cones) with a fixed radius.
