This interactive Java applet provides learners the opportunity to explore concepts of volume, its conservation, and relative capacities of containers. The applet will simulate pouring liquid from one tank (prism, cylinder or cone) into another. Students are asked to predict how high the level will be in the second tank. Instructions and teaching information are included.
Liquid volumes with virtually no mess! By Uncle Bob on 04/19/2012 - 10:45
This app is slick. Young students can just free play and make a game guessing the height of liquid when poured into a tank with a different size base or a different shape. Pour from prism to prism, cylinder to cylinder or cylinder to cone. Older learners can test their ability to use the volume formulas and solve for the unknown height.
