Real life applications of volume and surface area

Mastering volume and surface area calculations is a necessary skill for many different careers and activities. 

In engineering, volume and area are very important. Without volume, you can’t figure out key calculations like density, for example. If you are shipping goods, and you want to know how many boxes with fit inside a container then you need to know the volume and surface area of the items involved. Surface area is even important in biology, where certain biological structures often try to maximize their surface area! The applications of volume and surface area are endless. Use our maths worksheets to master calculations such as the volume of a cylinder and the volume and surface area of other 3D shapes.

Volume and Surface area at KS3 and KS4

Volume and Surface area is a section of algebra that runs right the way through Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4.

Year 7 students will find resources such as our volume of cuboids worksheet or our recognising prisms worksheet very relevant. Students in year 11 on the other hand will need to make use of our volume of pyramids and cones worksheet and our volume of frustrums worksheet. We have a volume and surface area worksheet for students at all levels of their KS3 and KS4 studies.
