Volume of a Rectangular Prism
Use the sliders to create prisms of different dimensions. Use the check boxes to show and hide the formula and volume. This can be used to practice finding the volume of a great number of prisms.
Complete these Activities and record your results in your Maths Book. 1. Use the application to create a prism with the same dimensions of the objects you have already measured and recorded using Base Ten Blocks. 2. For each of the following volumes, create two different shaped prisms that share the same volume. Sketch the prisms in your Maths book as well. a)150cm³ b)326cm³ c)52cm³ 3. How many different shaped prisms can you have with the same volume? Why do you think that many different shapes can have the same volume?
