Volume of a Pyramid
Students learn that the formula for the volume of a prism is length times width times height, so the volume of a prism that has a length of 25 inches, a width of 4 inches, and a height of 9 inches, is 25 times 4 times 9, or 900 cubic inches. Students also learn that the formula for the volume of a cube is side length cubed, and the formula for the volume of a pyramid is 1/3 times the area of the base times the height of the pyramid. Students are then asked to find the volume of prisms, cubes, an

Definition of a Circle - Radius of a Circle
Students learn the definitions of a circle (is a set of points in a plane that are a given distance from a given point in the plane), the given point is called the center, and the distance from the center to the circle is called the radius.Â  Whichever point on the circle is chosen the distance to the center of the circle will be the same, so all radii of a given circle are congruent.Â Â  Good quality video for grade four and up.
