Volume Resources


I hear a lot about math teachers from my students, and while every teacher is unique, some comments are repeated over and over. By far the most common one I hear is that their teacher didn't really explain something, or was incapable of elaborating when questioned and simply repeated the same lecture again. As a tutor, my first priority is to make sure the student understands the material, and... read more


Solid of Revolution - Finding Volume by Rotation Finding the volume of a solid revolution is a method of calculating the volume of a 3D object formed by a rotated area of a 2D space. Finding the volume is much like finding the area, but with an added component of rotating the area around a line of symmetry - usually the x or y axis. (1) Recall finding the area under a curve. Find... read more
