Lesson Plan: Volumes of Composite Solids Mathematics • 7th Grade

This lesson plan includes the objectives and prerequisites of the lesson teaching students how to find volumes of composite solids consisting of two or more regular solids.


Students will be able to

  • find the volumes of composite solids where two solids have been joined together,
  • find the volumes of composite solids where one solid has been removed from another,
  • solve real-world problems by finding the volumes of composite solids.


Students should already be familiar with

  • finding volumes of solids:
    • cubes,
    • prisms,
    • cylinders,
    • pyramids,
    • cones,
    • spheres.
