Volume is a measure of how much space there is inside a solid object. To calculate the volume of a cone, we use the volume formula V=(1/3)π(r^2)h where h is the vertical height of the cone and r is the base radius of the cone.
Care should be taken not to confuse the vertical height with the slant height of the cone, which is used to calculate the curved surface area of the cone.
The volume of the cone is measured in units cubed, for example cm^3 or mm^3 . We will often be asked to either give an answer in terms of π or to round the answer to a given degree of accuracy, such as to the nearest tenth.
There will be students in your class who require individual attention to help them succeed in their maths GCSEs. In a class of 30, it’s not always easy to provide.
Help your students feel confident with exam-style questions and the strategies they’ll need to answer them correctly with our dedicated GCSE maths revision programme.
Lessons are selected to provide support where each student needs it most, and specially-trained GCSE maths tutors adapt the pitch and pace of each lesson. This ensures a personalised revision programme that raises grades and boosts confidence.
