Create prisms using the sliders. You will need to write down in your maths books the different prisms you make and the volume of them. For example: Prism 1:    1 layer = 5 cubes x 6 cubes (5 x 6) = 30cm3   7 layers high   Volume = 30 x 7= 210cm3 If you get stuck, create one layer at a time. You can change the units to metres or cms, just make sure you write the units in your book.
