We consider a new formulation for finite volume element methods, which is satisfied by known finite volume methods and it can be used to introduce new ones. This framework results by approximating the test function in the formulation of finite element method. We analyze piecewise linear conforming or nonconforming approximations on nonuniform triangulations and prove optimal order H1-norm and L2-norm error estimates.
