Volumes and Surface Areas
Below is a QuickQuestions Interface © for producing random questions on volumes and surface areas.
It produces a question to calculate the volume or surface area of a 3D shape, including cuboids, prisms, cylinders, cones, pyramids and spheres.
Select which shape you would like to generate, or choose random to get any of the shapes listed.
Then calculate the area of the shape, and check your answer.
You can also have inverse questions, where you have to work out a missing length.
There is a 10QQI version of this activity.

Ideas for Teachers
Quickly check your students abilities to calculate the volumes and surface areas of various shapes (all the formulae they need to know), by getting them to answer the questions generated on Show Me boards. The answers are given to 2 decimal places when necessary.
