Volume of a tennis ball - not your typical Year 7 question!

The lesson took a slight detour for Year 7 Thomas as he really wanted to know how to calculate the volume of his tennis ball! 🎾 Normally a topic studied in Year 9, Thomas and I discussed the difficulties in working out the radius from a 3D shape and he persevered to use the formula and calculate his answer!

A great example of students going above and beyond in Mathematics!
