# Lesson 14

Working with Pyramids

### Lesson Narrative

Students calculate the volume of several pyramids, and they work backward to find possible dimensions of a pyramid given its volume. Students make use of structure (MP7) when they select dimensions that combine to create a particular volume result.

### Learning Goals

Teacher Facing

- Calculate volumes of pyramids.
- Generate sets of pyramid and cone dimensions that result in given volumes.

### Student Facing

- Let’s use the pyramid volume formula to solve problems.

### Required Materials

### Required Preparation
