 Name: Measurement and Geometry: Area and Volume of Geometric Figures and Objects ID: m35023 Language: English (en) Summary: This module is from Fundamentals of Mathematics by Denny Burzynski and Wade Ellis, Jr. This module discusses area and volume of geometric figures and objects. By the end of the module students should know the meaning and notation for area, know the area formulas for some common geometric figures, be able to find the areas of some common geometric figures, know the meaning and notation for volume, know the volume formulas for some common geometric objects and be able to find the volume of some common geometric objects.
