Volume of Compound Shapes Worksheets

The objective of this collection of pdf worksheets on finding the volume of composite figures is to provide practice in determining the volume of compound solids made up of two or more 3D shapes like prisms, pyramids, spheres, hemispheres, cylinders, and cones. The step-by-step approach begins with counting unit cubes in solid blocks for grade 5, finding volume of L-blocks and moving to adding and subtracting volume of two or more shapes for high school students. Free worksheets are also included.
