30. Use formulas to calculate the volumes of three-dimensional figures (cylinders, cones, and spheres) to solve real-world problems.

Alabama Alternate Achievement Standards
AAS Standard:
M.AAS.8.30 Use the formulas for perimeter, area, and volume to solve real-world and mathematical problems (where volume problems are limited to finding the volume of cylinders and rectangular prisms).

17. Model and solve problems using surface area and volume of solids, including composite solids and solids with portions removed.

a. Give an informal argument for the formulas for the surface area and volume of a sphere, cylinder, pyramid, and cone using dissection arguments, Cavalieri's Principle, and informal limit arguments.

b. Apply geometric concepts to find missing dimensions to solve surface area or volume problems.
