8W: Math and Science – Let’s make a Kiddish Cup!

Hi Grade 8!

Mr. Ray and I are joining forces for a bit to help support you with designing, planning, and creating your own Kiddish Cup using the Blender Software and 3-D Printer! Here is Mr. Ray’s rubric for your project.

To find the area of a cylinder you need to multiply the area of the base x the height of the cylinder.

Take a look here.


To help you find the volume of your internal cylinder. Here is a video (same from class) to help.

Also, don’t forget if you are provided the required volume in oz. You need to find a conversion to cubic centimeters. You can find an online conversion calculator here.

Once you have the volume required in cubic centimeters, now you are ready to work backwards to find your heights and radius!

How? Here’s a helpful sheet to help you work backwards!
