Ch. 18 Volume Formulas

This week we will complete Chapter 18, which gives an overview of volume formulas:

    – Volume of Cones
    – Volume of Spheres

For the course material, I will use examples from the book to illustrate the different concepts students are to understand from each section. I will solve the examples on the whiteboard and check for understanding from the students. Their homework will directly represent these concepts and help ingrain the different mathematical procedures into them so they are prepared for chapter, midterm, and final exams. There will be a quiz at the end of this week.
